In this edition of Maw-pemita’jik Qalipu’k (the caribou are travelling together) we have a lot of great news to share.
On Page 3, breaking news regarding our acceptance into the Atlantic Policy Congress. This is a positive step forward on the heels of our acceptance into the Assembly of First Nations just last year. We are all looking forward to working together with other First Nations in Canada.
The Membership Orientation Community Tour is wrapping up with the final dates coming up this month. Find all the details to attend a session in Port au Port, Corner Brook, Benoit’s Cove or St. John’s and, if you can’t attend in person, find a link to the online edition of the Membership Information Guide on Page 4 and stay tuned for an upcoming online information session.
Also, in this edition, Cultural Connections, on Page 5 is an inspiring story about finding a personal connection to one’s family history on display at the National Museum of History.
