"National aboriginal day means a great deal to me. It is a day that our people are are celebrated on a national level and it provides an opportunity to our non aboriginal friends to learn more about our culture and traditions" - Michael Linklater
Michael is somewhat of a local celebrity. Michael is known best for his basketball career. He is also a huge contribution to his community. He endorsed the #boyswithbraids campaign stating: "I wear my braid to honor my ancestors and my culture". We sincerely appreciate that he took the time to participate in our one question interview for National Aboriginal Day
Over the next few months I'll be interviewing resilient women changemakers in Canada and the United States for SheNative's blog. Some interviews will be on video, others written, and some will be podcast style. With this in mind, I have a question for you: If you could choose one woman who embodies resilience and changemaking, who would it be and why?
Next week our Chief Changemaker Devon Fiddler travels to China to speak at the Alibaba Global Conference on Women and Entrepreneurship as well as the Asian Women in Leadership Summit.
