A Cree family with roots in the James Bay regions of northern Ontario and Quebec says it's happy to be able to show some important Indigenous representation on the latest season of Family Feud Canada.

The Wabano family was in Toronto last month to tape in front of a live studio audience for season four of the show,

"We wanted to do this [to] show that there is space for Aboriginal voices … for Aboriginal promotion and awareness of the resilience of our people," said Virginia Wabano of Mistissini, Que., who is competing with her children Scott, Rick and Vicky, as well as her daughter-in-law Maroline.

The Wabanos have ties to the Cree community of Waskaganish, Que., and Moose Factory, Ont., where Virginia grew up and raised her family.
