Ts’elxwéyeqw Tribe Management Limited is proud to have sponsored 16 year old Jasmine Roberts to compete in the 2023 North American Indigenous Games in Halifax, Nova Scotia this past July!
Jasmine Jay Roberts (Setwomelet), born in Chilliwack B.C. is from the Stó:lō territory within the Fraser Valley. She is a member of Tzeachten First Nation and has lived her entire life in the neighbouring community of Soowahlie, Cultus Lake.
Jasmine attends Sardis Secondary full time as a Grade 10 student and works part-time when she is available. She has trained and raced in traditional war canoe racing from the age of 10 years old. She competes in her own age group races as well as the older group races. Jasmine trains daily at Cultus Lake and races in multiple communities in BC and Washington State.
Away from the water, Jasmine enjoys photography, practicing her cultural ways and crafting.
Jazzy came home with 5 medals, 1 Gold, 2 Silvers and 2 Bronzes. TTML is very proud of all her hard work and dedication to the sport. Congratulations Jasmine!
