Dancers from Sagkeeng First Nation win Canada's Got Talent

A youth dance group from the Sagkeeng First Nation in Manitoba are the first winners of Canada's Got Talent.

Brothers Dallas and Brandon Courchene and Vincent O’Laney of Sagkeeng's Finest combined traditional Native dancing with modern steps. Their unique style won the hearts of Canadians, who voted them the winners of the series on Monday night.

"It's the best day of my life," O'Laney told The Winnipeg Free Press upon the group's return to Manitoba yesterday.

The group will share $100,000, a trip, a car and other prizes.
