Maw-pemita’jik Qalipu’k October Newsletter

Kwe’


In this edition of Maw-pemita’jik Qalipu’k you will want to pay attention to an important announcement regarding the Medical Transportation Benefit.  There are changes to how members living in Atlantic Canada will access this benefit, and we want to make sure you are aware of all the details.  Find this on page 1.

You also won’t want to miss out on the Aboriginal Traditional Knowledge project featured on page 4, right next to Natural Resource Manager Jonathan Strickland’s guidance for a safe and sustainable harvest this fall.

Also in this issue, a throwback to the warm days of July with a beautiful excerpt from the sermon from Father Donald Leonard of Sacred Heart Parish, the site of this years’ St. Anne’s Day Celebration.  Special thanks to Service Qalipu Director Ralph Eldridge for organizing the event and all the volunteers who worked together to make it possible.

Do you remember hearing about the end of the grade 5 Outdoor Education Program last spring? Well, its back on and we’re proud to share that we played a hand in making it happen.  Get the scoop on page 6.

Over the past month or so I was lucky enough to get around to meet a lot of fantastic people and see some special places including the Mi’kmaq Language and Culture Camp in De Grau, The Drop-in Addiction Recovery Centre in Stephenville, and a Sweat Lodge in Stephenville Crossing.  I’ve shared some recollections, interviews and photos of these special places and people.

I hope you enjoy the newsletter, and I encourage you to get in touch with your thoughts or contributions to the next edition of Maw-pemita’jik Qalipu’k.

Thanks,
Alison
