Buffalo Boys & First Nations Dancers

The Buffalo Boys began as an after-school program at Mother Teresa Middle School (MTMS) in 2016, led by MTMS Indigenous Advocate/Oskapeos, Evan Whitestar. Over time, the drum group has grown and features MTMS alumni who are in high school. By living the values of the drum, MTMS students are becoming resilient young leaders in the community and are honoring the Truth and Reconciliation Report’s “Calls to Action” in a real and authentic way. When MTMS students perform at the Canadian Western Agribition, at halftime during a Roughriders game, or at a community event, they exemplify what a healthy lifestyle embedded in First Nations culture and education looks like. The MTMS Buffalo Boys provide a space for students to learn cultural practices, share in traditional ways, and have pride in who they are.
