Sipi Flamand

Miaskom Sipi, means “flow of two rivers.” He is originally from Manawan, a community of the Atikamekw-Nehirowisiw nation. Above all, Sipi is a pow-wow dancer and an activist for the First Nations. In particular, he was the spokesperson of the First Nations Youth Network for two years. It is very important for Sipi to get involved in his community and, according to him, the transmission of traditional knowledge is a key to the preservation of Native Americans identity, as well as to defend themselves more efficiently against the colonial culture. Sipi is studying Political Science.
