Growing up in a small Metis community in Manitoba, playing hockey competitively came with a heavy financial and emotional price tag for Brigette Lacquette. She faced regular racism and significant funding challenges. But her family and reserve, Cote First Nation Saskatchewan, rallied behind her and she became the first First Nation to represent Canada in Ice Hockey at an Olympic Games. Today, Brigette strives to be a role model for girls and Indigenous children, encouraging them to follow their dreams. Her message: “You can come from the most isolated town and community and still be a part of Team Canada.”
