A group of youth from Alexis Nakota Sioux Nation have created a music video with a message of hope for their community.

Fight for Hope was produced with funding from the RCMP’s Family Violence Initiative Fund and help from N’we Jinan, a non-profit organization focused on giving Indigenous youth an artistic platform.

Madison Potts was one of the co-writers and appeared in the video.
