"In the majority of our sunrise ceremonies there’s always children participating in there; we always want our children and youth to learn right.

'This is how they learn, by participating in the ceremonies. We never shut them out. They're always there first. Children come first, because they're the ones who are going to lead our people later on when we're not around.

'They're our next generation of hope for Aboriginal people.”

- Madonna O’Nabigon (Cree)
