My name is Hayley Fayant and I am a Cree and Métis mother and student at the University of Regina on Treaty Four territory. My family and I relocated from Fort Qu’Appelle to Regina in order to pursue our education. I am in my third year majoring in Women’s and Gender Studies and minoring in Indigenous Studies and I enjoy having the opportunity to learn from different cultures and life histories as a student. I have always strived to bring awareness to Indigenous issues as well as bring an Indigenous perspective to the conversation. I am thrilled to be a part of this year’s Youth Reconciliation Initiative because I believe the key to change is building community, making space for dialogue and learning, while developing new relationships.”
Hello! My name is Kayla Maclellan, I am from treaty 4 territory. I am an Indigenous woman, and a mother to a beautiful three year old child. I joined the CRE team because I wanted to be part of the changing relationship between Indigenous and non Indigenous people on turtle island. I hope to serve as a role model for my child– I want to be someone they can look up to and I want to make the world they live in a better place. I also can’t wait to get out into my community and build connections with as many people as possible!
