Kapawe’no First Nation – During a recent interview while visiting our territory, Ashley Ghostkeeper made a great choice to wear a Kapawe’no First Nation hat. This display was a potent reflection of the absolute Nêhiyawak way of life.
The hat stood as an embodiment of Ashley’s roots within the Nation and territory, and a subtle, yet resonant call to remember and uphold these values.
The performance by Ashley was felt by Annie Sutherland of our Kapawe’no Nêhiyawak school, who was moved to gift Ashley a ribbon skirt she had crafted herself. This was a significant exchange that speaks to the mutual respect and recognition within the Nation. Annie’s act was a tribute to the shared principles that tie Nêhiyawak together. It exemplifies how individual actions can resonate within the Nation, fortifying its inherent strength and unity.
