Two local Indigenous teenagers are being rewarded for their efforts to help family and community members recover from COVID-19 while being in the hospital.

Seventeen-year-old Meadow Musqua and her friend Kiana Francis have been sending their prayers through traditional healing Jingle Dress Dances they’ve been performing on the lawn of the Regina General Hospital, every evening at 6 p.m., for the past two weeks.
