Rayanne Charlie has seen a lot of change in the last ten years as a teacher in Burns Lake, BC.

She remembers what it was like when she first moved to town. "It felt like First Nations on one side, non-native on the other side. You walk into an event or even a restaurant, or you go to go out dancing... and all the non-natives are on one side and all the First Nations are on the other. It was like apartheid," She remembers.

But Rayanne is hopeful that things are changing and she is committed to helping to bring the two communities together.
