“I am Raymond Jolly from Waskaganish First Nation!”
I was raised here in Waskaganish and was taught our traditional values growing up and this shaped the way I am today. I left my community at 13-years-old to pursue hockey and education. This journey then led me to attend Algonquin College for three years, and still today I am a student but at Carleton University. Living away from the community has been a learning journey for me. I realized the importance of being proud and to embrace who I am wherever I am. I will always represent the values my ancestors have passed on to me. Thank you all who have supported me and the brand!
