Welcome to Wacey Little Light!
We are very excited to welcome Wacey Little Light to the Bridges team, as the coordinator of the new program Indigenous Rising Treaty 7.
Wacey is a community leader born and raised from Siksika Nation. He is enrolled in Ecotourism and Outdoor Leadership at Mount Royal University, learning about the tourism industry and leadership in all its facets and applications. With a passion in media and arts, Wacey does a lot of audio and video production through his involvement with Siksika’s Napi Collective and his business Sweety Treaty. If you haven’t listened to the Sweety Treaty podcast yet, check it out! Wacey believes in empowering youth and finds that both arts and outdoor leadership are effective tools for doing that.
Wacey’s Blackfoot culture is an important aspect of his life, and he hopes to encourage more youth to follow and practice their own ancestral traditions. He hopes to bring all his knowledge and experience to facilitate Indigenous youth leaders from Treaty 7 to empower each other and their own communities. Wacey says, "Using all the tools readily available through online technologies, promoting collaboration across borders has never been easier. Bringing together the many different ideas and talents that Treaty 7 youth brings to the table is what truly excites me about this program, but I also hope we get to foster a community that values collaboration, a sense of belonging, and creativity."
