Her Story

McKenzie Taylor

Curve Lake First Nation Girl's Drumming Group

McKenzie's Story :

My name is McKenzie Taylor; I’m 13 and my passion is sports and my culture.

I joined my drum group because I wanted to be apart of a family and to learn more about my culture and my roots. I have also learned to love myself, my culture and the people around me.

My favourite memory is going to perform at various ceremonies and informing  people about the drum.

Everybody thinks I only have a passion for hockey but what people don’t know is that I’m pretty good at most sports and I’m very proud of that skill.

One thing I would change to make the world a better place would be to end racism. I have faced racism myself as an indigenous female and it’s very sickening and no one should feel ANY DIFFERENT because of their skin colour or heritage.
