National Indigenous Peoples Day is just around the corner and there are plenty of celebrations happening across the province. We’ve been doing our best to do a roundup of events being hosted by various community groups and organizations. Clicking on page 1 will lead you to the full list of events. Is there something missing? Let us know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
One thing I hope you’ll take note of in this newsletter is the importance of updating your ginu membership profile. Information on how and why you should do this can be found on page 5 of this edition of Maw-pemita’jik Qalipu’k.
In a nutshell, we need your email address to send you important news, benefit updates and e-voting opportunities, and a mailing address so that we can send voter information packages the next time we have an election. Recall that in 2018 we had an amendment vote to change the way we run elections so, next time around, everything you need to cast your vote will arrive in the mail. Many in our communities may not realize this change so let’s help each other out by spreading the word.
Please, update ginu!
Also, in this edition of the newsletter, find an update on the Comprehensive Community Plan (Page 10), a great story on sharing Indigenous culture in the classroom and on the land (Page 11), and an update from the Natural Resources Department on a wetland delineation project (Page 12-13).
If you’ve got news to share, please send it our way!
