I am so thrilled and incredibly happy to have walked in the grand entry at Chapleau High School’s Mini Powwow as Miss North Ontario! Since they considered me as royalty, I had the honor to lead the head dancers around the powwow ground as I followed the flag carriers. I am so happy that the first event I attended as Miss North Ontario 2017 was an event that pulled my community together in a way that involved my culture. I am a proud anishinaabe women from Chapleau Cree First Nation and I believe that everyone should respect others and expect one and others cultures, that is why I was so happy to be involved in the powwow because it represents everything I believe in as a First Nations women.
