Project Overview

​If self-determination is the goal, then Darian Brown has to be one of the most self-determining young men from a remote reserve that you would ever want to meet. Darian graduated high school a full year early and in May of 2018, at age 18, he flew from Pipestone, his remote Manitoban reserve, on his own all the way to British Columbia to attend The Bird’s Nest Summer Hockey Skills and Leadership Program. His mentor was the director of that program, Dwight Ballantyne. Dwight himself had made a similar journey from his remote reserve in Saskatchewan 2 ½ years earlier.

In that preceding 2 ½ years Dwight had transformed himself from a underdeveloped yet skilled hockey player into a physically, mentally and determinedly brilliant, fit, healthy hockey star. In 2018, Dwight won the BC Premier’s Indigenous Leadership through Sport Award and was chosen to play in an International hockey tournament in Europe representing Canada.

Having completed the summer hockey program in BC, Darian was selected to play Jr. Hockey for the Norway House North Stars in Manitoba. Through the recommendation of Dwight, Darian has also been selected to play in the International hockey tournament in Amsterdam in March 2019. For both these young men this is an opportunity to showcase their outstanding hockey skills to an international audience and potentially put Darian in a position to receive an award equivalent to that won by Dwight in his home province of Manitoba. In addition to being a highly skilled hockey player and an early high school graduate Darian is also an outstanding First Nations cultural dancer winning prizes for his skills in numerous competitions.

Dwight has successfully raised all the necessary funds to attend the International hockey tournament through sponsorship. However, due to his fairly recent acceptance on the team Darian needs to raise $5,000 to cover the costs of his flight, accommodation, equipment and sightseeing costs. For a young man from a very remote northern Canadian reserve this is a chance of lifetime. Please help us raise the necessary funds to get Darian to Amsterdam.
