Isaiah Devilliers

First Nations Youth, Yukon First Nation Education Directorate

I’m born and raised in Whitehorse, Yukon. I am Inuvialuit and part of the crow clan, my father’s side of the family is from Inuvik and my mother’s side is from Mamrachi, New Brunswick. I have 2 brothers and 4 sisters and 14 cousins from my mother’s side (not sure about my father’s side). A little about me, I do like to spend time outdoors bison hunting in the winter, hiking and camping in the summer. I grew up swimming in the Yukon River and other lakes around town. None of them were ever warm. In 2021 a bunch of kids from my grad class decided to go cliff jumping at miles canyon and ended up with my classmate and I going through Miles Canyon and doing our best trying to stay above the fast flowing river. In the end we both survived just some minor cuts and bruises.
