"National Aboriginal Day to me is a day of recognition of what we as First Nations have gone through and how we have risen up from all that has happened. It is a day to showcase the many talented, and successful indigenous people who are making a impact on our future generations. As we look back at what each and everyone of us have overcome we stand strong on this day knowing that as First Nations people we have the power to change how our youth will identify as First Nations future leaders." - Roderick Rabbitskin

We at SheNative have had the honor of working along side Rodrick with his Dream P K Modeling endeavor. We watched him create an environment for youth to flourish in their love for fashion and modeling. He is an amazing mentor and Role Model and every decision he made was to help the youth. We are so proud of him as we know it wasn't easy to put together the project he did.

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.
