Chief Cam by Tish
I chose Chief Cam, who sings Canadian pow wow and dances.
He is a leader because he does a lot of things, for example: he’s a singer, dancer, horseback racer, leads ceremonies and drumming.
I picked him because he looked interesting to me because he does a lot of things that I also like to do.
Tashayna Peters by Elvyra
I picked Tashayna Rose Starr Peters.
She is a leader because she went to Africa as a Youth Outreach Coordinator, and because she leads a girls group.
I chose her because I know Tashayna, and I am in her girls’ group 🙂
Dr. Lorna Williams by Mellanie
She is the Lil’wat Nation Canada Research Chair, Indigenous Knowledge and Learning.
She is an Associate Professor from the University of Victoria.
She is the Director of Aboriginal Education.
She is an educator with many years of experience in Aboriginal Education Indigenous Language Revialization, Program, Curriculum Development, Teacher Development, effects of colonization on learning, and Indigenous ways of knowing.
Because she has achieved a pHD and is now a leader in Indigenous Education, she is a leader and that is why I chose her.
Chief Harry O’Donaghey by Chasity
Chief Harry O’Donaghey lives in D’Arcy, BC. He likes to hunt moose , has two dogs and works in fisheries. I picked him because he is my papa and I love him.
Ovide Allard by Kashmir
I chose Ovide Allard because he founded Yale B.C. Most of my family history is in Yale so I decided that he will be my role model. He is my role model because if he did not found Yale I probably wouldn’t exist or I wouldn’t live here at least. The house that my (insert amount of greats) grandma lived in is now a museum. I have visited it before and I have also been in the church in the backyard. I don’t remember any names from the museum but I do remember some things from the cemetery in Yale. I have family under the maiden name of Jackson in the cemetery, says my grandma.
