Dene Woman Wins Youth Activist Award for Preserving Aboriginal Culture


Kolson was one of four young people who trekked to the North Pole in April 2013. The team lowered a flag to the seabed, attached to the flag was a capsule with more than two and a half million signatures calling for a sanctuary in the uninhabited area around the pole.

“My connection to the north is that I am from the north,” Kolson said in a video produced by Green Peace about the trek. “I’m hoping that by being involved I’m able to provide a voice back to the land and the environment, because we are the land and the land is of us.”
