CBC's #IndigenousEyes photo contest for aboriginal youth now accepting submissions that focus on elders
#IndigenousEyes photo contest puts lens on aboriginal elders
CBC's photo contest for aboriginal youth now accepting submissions that focus on elders
CBC is launching its #IndigenousEyes photo contest, and this year the lens is focused on the role of elders in aboriginal communities.
For Charleyboy, the role of elders in aboriginal communities came into focus in 2013, when she took part in an indigenous writing residency at the Banff Centre for the Arts.
There she met Pahan Pte Ste Win, a Lakota woman from Winnipeg. She asked Pte Ste Win for guidance on her writing, and the two hit it off.
"She had mentioned that she was interested in adopting me, so we did a formal adoption ceremony as we closed the residency," she said.
