Speaker: Stephen Paquette

Stephen Paquette was born John Kimewon, a survivor of the 60s scoop. He is of the Bear Clan, Ojibway of the the Anishinaabe Nation from Wikwemikong unceded territory.

Being adopted as an Indian child, it was determined that he would not be capable of much. His story of strength and resiliency in facing oppression and racism is his gift to share in order to inspire others to reach their full potential.
