National Observer: Jirousek is an Indigenous, third-year student and athlete who is part of the Kainai Nation, a nation of the Blackfoot Confederacy. He is also commissioner of Indigenous Affairs for the undergraduate student society and chair of McGill’s Indigenous Affairs Committee. Fed up with task forces and working groups discussing the potential for changing the name of the university men’s sports teams to something less offensive than “Redmen,” Jirousek organized a campaign and demonstration to #ChangetheName.
