Jenna Talackova has become a worldwide sensation following her battle with the Miss Universe Organization over her ability to compete in the Miss Universe pageants.
But her heritage isn’t discussed as often.
Talackova’s roots are in the Lake Babine Nation, in northern BC. Relatives say she returns often to potlatch, and credits her uncle for teaching her the importance of her native heritage.
APTN National News reporter Rob Smith has the details.
