Lindsay (Eekwol) grew up in the First Nations community. She experienced an unforgiving world of drugs, alcohol, and violence within her family. As a child, she lived in fear while her parents and their friends had endless parties that often broke out in fights. As she grew up in this environment, she also became an abuser of drugs and alcohol. On one occasion she almost died one night as she lay unconscious on the highway. This seminal moment caused her devoted sister to issue an ultimatum. Lindsay had to change her ways. For the first time in her life, she listened. Her path to sobriety led to her becoming a successful solo female aboriginal hip-hop artist. Part of the "Teens 101" series.
