2021 First Nations Role Models
School District No. 27 and the First Nations Education Department are thrilled to announce the 2021 First Nations Role Models Kaden Craig and Seth Cahoose.
Kaden is a proud member of the Saulteau First Nation (Moberley Lake Band). She is a Gr. 9 Honor Roll and Work Ethic award student at Lake City Secondary (Columneetza). Kaden is proud of her First Nations Ancestry and always tries to do her best in everything she does. She has dedicated herself to learning her culture and traditions; the language and stories. Since the beginning of middle school she has been learning the Secwepemc language through her elders and peers.
Kaden plans to put her Role Model Bursary towards a drawing tablet to gain experience and practice so she can major in digital design at Alberta’s University of the Arts to pursue her life goal of a career in Art.
Seth is a proud member of Tl'entinqox Government (Anaham Band). Seth is in Gr. 8 at Lake City Secondary School (Columneetza) where he is an Honor Roll and Work Ethic Award Student. Seth is a very proud Tsilhqot'in from Tl'etinqox, he is half Chilcotin and half Carrier. Seth gives thanks to his family for taking care of him and is always willing to help out his Elders who he calls "Knowledge Keepers" who we can learn a lot from.
In the future Seth plans to put his Role Model Bursary toward a new laptop for school and college savings.
