Prince Albert’s Rebecca Strong has won Canada’s Got Talent. The Federation of Sovereign Indigenous Nations congratulated her on social media last night saying she has made all of Turtle Island proud. Rebecca was in tears upon winning. The 20-year-old is the first Indigenous woman to win Canada’s Got Talent and the title comes with $1 million. She is a member of the Black Lake Denesuline First Nation.

Strong was congratulated in the Saskatchewan Legislature on Wednesday. The MLA for Prince Albert-Northcote said along with her million-dollar prize, Rebecca also secured the hearts of Canadians with her performances.

She was introduced in the Legislature last week after she won the Golden Buzzer in the semifinals. Ross said, “We were also fortunate to have her and her father give the Caucus office a private performance of Hallelujah and we knew right there that there was no way she was leaving Canada’s Got Talent without that million-dollar reward.” Ross added that the province is incredibly proud of Rebecca. “Not only has she shown how incredible her talent is, but she has also been a continuously positive voice for Indigenous youth. Rebecca is a living example of how following your dreams and listening to your heart will take you exactly where you need to go.”
