The pair have launched the We Matter, a series of short videos in the style of the It Gets Better campaign.
"We want to convey to Indigenous youth that no matter how hopeless and lonely things feel or seem, there’s always a way forward," Tunchai told BuzzFeed Canada.
Growing up in a small northern community, Kelvin and Tunchai have seen that pain first hand.
"We’ve lost cousins too early," said Kelvin. "In my mom’s home community, it’s the kind of thing where people can count on their fingers remembering the suicides from the last five to eight years."
Suicide is the leading cause of death for Indigenous youth and six young people in Saskatchewan died by suicide in October alone.
There are now more than 20 videos of Indigenous people — including youth and elders from all walks of life — sharing messages of hopes.
This is what they want young people to know. Click the names beneath the images to hear their full stories.
