A special Indigenous ceremony saw dancers make their way into a Blackfoot naming event on Wednesday. The Children of St. Martha School in Lethbridge received a Blackfoot name and celebrated by hosting a Powwow full of bright colours and Indigenous regalia. As BCN’s Micah Quinn explains, children from five schools from around southern Alberta came by to enjoy the festivities.
After graduating from Mount Royal University in Calgary with a Broadcasting Diploma, Micah made the trek down to Lethbridge to work for Bridge City News. He has previously worked at City TV Calgary on the Breakfast Television morning show. He looks forward to connecting with this community, and reaching a new audience. Micah has a passion for interviewing and finding out why people think the way they do. You’ll often find him pursuing local feature stories and hard news.
