Bug-O-Nay-Ge-Shig's LaKaylee Kingbird sets sights on a better future for community
June 1, 2023
BENA - For LaKaylee Kingbird, life's challenges have informed her pursuits of a better future for herself and her community.
As she navigates the disappearance of her sister Nevaeh, who went missing from Bemidji in 2021, Kingbird is taking a stance of solidarity by rallying behind the cause of missing and murdered Indigenous women.
Doing so in the midst of attending school and formulating her future plans hasn't been easy, but it's worthwhile work when she's able to rally in a sea of red.
