OTTAWA, CANADA On Christmas, Chief Spence encouraged First Nations youth to retain their cultures and not to get discouraged when people say negative things about them. A video was released on YouTube by A. Cazabon to be shared with Native youth.
In the video that lasts just over one minute, Chief Spence said she was proud for standing up to government so that they can have healthy lives and to have a safe environment.
