2015 Rose Nolan Scholarship winner is Tahnee Carabello who is a member of Garden River First Nation in Ontario. She will be entering her first year of a three year Juris Doctor program this fall at the Bora Laskin Faculty of Law, at Lakehead University in Thunder Bay, Ontario.
This past June Tahnee recently graduated from Algoma University’s Law & Justice degree program with a minor in Anishinaabemowin. Tahnee was very proud in making her own jingle dress regalia and had a coming out last fall at the university’s pow-wow.
Once she completes her law degree, she hopes to use her cultural knowledge along with her education to further Aboriginal rights by testing the limitations and creating new jurisprudence that will see communities evolve successfully into independent Nations.
