Dango + Oraibi

The Gogo Girls!

Oraibi and her parents, Joshua and Dango have called Fort McMurray home for over ten years. They love the diversity and the opportunities we are blessed to have in Wood Buffalo.

Oraibi is an excellent grade eleven student at Ecole McTavish High School and has recently joined the Student Council. She has been involved in several extra-curricular activities but her favourite activity in the world is dancing. Oraibi has been taking dance lessons since she was three years old and has studied various dance styles. She is part of the competitive team at Generation Dance. She has performed in numerous dance shows and events around the community and competed in dance competitions across western Canada. Oraibi is very excited to teach her mom some dance moves and is looking forward to having loads of fun while supporting the United Way!

Dango is very involved in the community and is a formidable community leader. She volunteers on many non-profit boards and committees. She currently serves as the Chair of the Multicultural Association of Wood Buffalo, Chair of King’s Kids Promotion Outreach Ministries, Vice Chair of UCB Canada, Director of Legacy Counseling Centre, and Director of United Way Fort McMurray and Wood Buffalo. She has been recognized and received awards for her community service in our region and province.

Dango is a lawyer and the owner of McMurray Regional Law Office. Dango also works with youth and children in different capacities to transfer knowledge and empower the next generation, which includes teaching business law at Keyano College.

One of Dango’s favourite things to do is watching her daughter dance, but dancing with her daughter to support the United Way is definitely at a different level.
