MESSAGE FROM THE CHIEF
It is with great sadness that I share news of the passing of former National Chief Dwight Dorey. Dwight was a friend to me, and a strong supporter of the Qalipu First Nation during his time as National Chief of the Congress of Aboriginal Peoples, and over the years as an advocate for the Indigenous people of Canada.
With summer solstice just around the corner, new buds on the trees and sunny skies, are you as excited as I am about all the opportunities to celebrate the season?
National Indigenous Peoples Day, for many communities, has become a weeklong celebration. In Corner Brook, the Mi’kmaq Flag will be raised on Monday, July 18th at several locations throughout the city. Join the circuit on the Majestic lawn at 9:30 AM (in front of the Qalipu office building at 3 Church Street). The event will begin with the planting of a tree and smudging of the flags which will later be raised at City Hall, the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary, Grenfell Campus and the College of the North Atlantic. Find all the details for this event on Page 13.
