May 11, 2024 — 

Two Manitobans are featured in a new documentary series highlighting the work of young Indigenous leaders across Turtle Island.

Rylee Nepinak, a member of Sagkeeng First Nation, and Tréchelle Bunn of Birdtail Sioux Dakota Nation are among the youth starring in Warrior Up!, which premières today on APTN.

Nepinak is the co-founder of Anishnative — an organization that introduces inner city youth to land-based teachings — and has cycled from Vancouver to Halifax to raise awareness and support for the suicide crisis in Tataskewayak Cree Nation in northern Manitoba.
