As a proud Anisnaabekwe, she is a life-long advocate for ensuring Indigenous youth are provided with equitable opportunities that are aimed at enhancing youth’s self-determination to become dynamic leaders in the reconciliation movement across Canada. For Hillory, it is integral that these young leaders are part of decision-making processes regarding socio-political, economic, cultural and environmental future of this country. These decisions will become part of their legacy work to support the next seven generations.
