Taylor McNally has been very busy within her community. As the M¨¦tis Nation of Ontario (MNO) North Channel M¨¦tis Council Youth Representative, she has been hosting events at local schools in Blind River.
On November 16, McNally went to ¨¦cole secondaire catholique Jeunesse-Nord to assist in their celebration of Rock Your Mocs Day, a worldwide event where Aboriginal people wear their moccasins at work, at school or anywhere.
Students and school staff were encouraged to wear their moccasins to school to show their pride and solidarity with Aboriginal peoples.
McNally held a M¨¦tis 101 event, teaching the students about M¨¦tis heritage and helping them make healing blankets using the four sacred medicines of Aboriginal people.
On December 17, McNally organized a mittens, scarves and hats campaign for local schools, taking donations and presenting them to the schools in the area for any children who forget, lose or don¡¯t have mittens, hats or scarves. Thanks to McNally¡¯s efforts, local children will be able to stay warm for winter recess.
The following message was posted on ¨¦cole St-Joseph¡¯s Facebook page: ¡°Taylor McNally, ancienne ¨¦l¨¨ve de l'¨¦cole St-Joseph, a eu la brillante id¨¦e de ramasser des mitaines, tuques et foulards afin de les remettre aux ¨¦coles de la communaut¨¦. Ainsi les enfants, qui auraient oubli¨¦ leurs mitaines, tuques ou foulard, auront la possibilit¨¦ d'¨ºtre bien au chaud durant les r¨¦cr¨¦ations. Merci Taylor et bravo pour ton implication!¡±
Good job, Taylor!
