Kalli Eagle Speaker (BASc '21)
When COVID hit, Kalli Eagle Speaker (BASc ‘21) spent hours in her living room, carefully picking up beads with her needle, transforming each individual bead into beautiful patterns on cloth. In a stressful and unprecedented time, for Kalli, beadwork is a destressing tool, a way of honouring her heritage and connecting with family.

Haley Shade (BSc '21)
“Oki, nitankoowa Omahkamootstakii. My Blackfoot name is on Omah’kamootstakii which in English means ‘big victory.’ My English name is Haley.” Haley Shade (BSc ‘21) grew up with grandparents fluent in the Blackfoot language. They encouraged Haley to integrate Blackfoot words into her conversation and embrace her heritage. “I think this will be useful in my medical career, working with elders and community members who speak Blackfoot as their first language,” she explains. Haley will be attending the Cumming School of Medicine at the University of Calgary (UCalgary) next fall after receiving three separate medical school offers.
