St. Pierre’s Annie Martel is one of 20 people from across Canada to receive the RBC Indigenous Youth Scholarship.

Nearly 800 indigenous youth were considered for the annual scholarship. Recipients are awarded $10,000 a year for up to four years.

Martel will use the funds to help her complete her master’s degree in Environmental Studies at the University of Winnipeg. She notes she wants to lean into her Métis roots and battle the effects of climate change in southern Manitoba.

“We’re facing droughts and more extreme flooding and this is not just my community but a lot of communities across the province and, unfortunately, climate change is amongst us. I am really interested in ways to use traditional knowledge and indigenous knowledge to combat climate change and create adaptation tools and mechanisms and risk assessment on how indigenous communities in Manitoba can deal with this ongoing crisis.”
