Aboriginal Role Models

The Personal Quests feature videos of Aboriginal role models who speak about their experiences growing up and how they have gotten to where they are today. There are 9 Aboriginal role models featured in the program. Our role models come from various nations in Canada, including people from the Nuu-chah-nulth, Squamish and Métis nations. The role models have diverse experiences, and come from different careers and points in their lives. Our role models include doctors, university students, business people, and artists. Watch the video to meet them all.
