WATCH | Indigenous youth offer stories from life in the city
Artist Nanook Gordon, model Jade Willoughby and journalist Kyle Edwards talk about their experiences navigating the urban jungle — and offer tips for how to stay grounded. Here some highlights from their conversation with New Fire host Lisa Charleyboy.
Nanook Gordon: "I was always proud to call myself Inuk, but I never knew what that meant."
Kyle Edwards: "I've had people stop me on the sidewalk and say 'Hey! Are you Native?'"
Jade Willoughby: "This life that I'm pursuing is so inherently the opposite of the life that I've grown up knowing with my family and all my elders and my community."
