MISSION UPDATE

Northlands First Nation, Lac Brochet, Manitoba

I was so pleased in early March to receive an invitation from Chief Antsanen and Council to visit Northlands First Nation, the most northern community in Manitoba. It is a fly-in Denesuline community with a population of just over 720. The caribou, a main part of their diet, did not pass nearby this year making the search for food more difficult.

Birch Narrows Dene First Nation, Saskatchewan

This trip, my latest, began right at the large sign to Birch Narrows.  I was greeted by Rebecca Sylvestre, Family Support Worker for this community.   We went immediately into a meeting attended by Rebecca, Rene Sylvestre, Health Director; Terry Campbell, Community Navigator

Southend-Birch Narrows – Onion Lake Update 2018

This trip was one of the most exciting I have experienced due to its varied elements.  From my starting point at Southend on the Manitoba border, to Onion Lake on the Alberta border, there were no dull moments!  My roles ran the gamut from assisting with media, switching to missions and preparing meals as team members planned interviews and videography.

Alaska Highway, Northern British Columbia, June 19-25

The highway was built in eight months and paid for by the US government during World War II. It runs from Dawson Creek, BC to Fairbanks, Alaska. Back then the road was dirt through forests. Today it is paved all the way making for easier access to the many Indigenous communities located miles into the interior. The access roads are all still dirt.
