Dakota, a Métis man, says much of his success is due to the fact that Sask Polytech puts an emphasis on hands-on learning. But, he says, the friendships and fun moments are what really supported him through the ups and downs as he worked to achieve his career and educational goals. #indigenous#indigenoussuccess#indigenousstudents
Last week I was fortunate enough to help with an amazing program that brings Indigenous kids from all over QLD to discover Brisbane and see what incredible opportunities are possible for them! Getting to meet these smart and hilarious kids and hear about the dreams they have while working with awesome people makes me thankful for the crazy decision I made just over a year and half ago to change paths!
It’s not work when you feel like you are making a difference ❤️
Today was incredible. Myself, and 6 other indigenous students had the opportunity to speak to the Council of Ministers of Education about our experience as indigenous students in the education system. I am in awe of the other students who spoke along side me. We asked the Minister's to listen to indigenous students of all ages and to acknowledge the intergenerational trauma that exists today as a result of residential schools and the sixties scoop. We told them that providing mandatory indigenous education and history at all levels of education and increasing the support for indigenous students would increase our success and change the learning environment for the better. This was the first time in 107 meetings of the minister's of education that there was a student panel present and it was an absolute honour to be a part of it.

It is just so surreal to think that we are now on our own paths in this life after years of being together as a family. We had our ups and downs, our petty arguments, our laugh fests, and our shared compassion and love for one another. In a way, that will still be there, always in our hearts. I'm going to miss you guys so much and want nothing but the best for all of you! We made our People proud, but now it's time to make them even more so!

At our recent Cedar Hat Weaving workshop, the lovely Shy Watters from shishalh (Sechelt) Nation, taught the art of cedar hat weaving. We are grateful to Shy and her partner for their teachings, knowledge sharing, and positive energy! Thank you to the Indigenous students who came out to weave and learn.
