b'I had an amazing opportunity to participate in the Louis Riel School Division Youth Indigenous Advisory Circle, which helped me meet other Indigenous youth in the division and have genuine, powerful and meaningful conversations with them. Participating in this group helped Celebrating Indigenous Culture and Communityme learn more about my culture, myself, and, perhaps more importantly, encouraged me to be a leader, to work together with others to better my community, and bring awareness to issues affecting Indigenous youth. The relationships I built with the students and the teachers gave me a sense of belonging I would not have had otherwise.
