Chase Sunflower Since 1996

Obituary William Henderson Nov 15th, 1951 - Oct 30th, 2022 There is holes in our hearts where we will hold memories of you forever. -Your loving wife Doris & family & friends Footprints in the Sand One night I dreamed a dream. As I was walking along the beach with my Lord. Across the dark sky flashed scenes from my life. For each scene, I noticed two sets of footprints in the sand, One belonging to me and one to my Lord. After the last scene of my life flashed before me, I looked back at the footprints in the sand. I noticed that at many times along the path of my life, especially at the very lowest and saddest times, there was only one set of footprints. This really troubled me, so I asked the Lord about it. “Lord, you said once I decided to follow you, You’d walk with me all the way. But I noticed that during the saddest and most troublesome times of my life, there was only one set of footprints. I don’t understand why, when I needed You the most, You would leave me.” He whispered, “My precious child, I love you and will never leave you Never, ever, during your trials and testings. When you saw only one set of footprints, It was then that I carried you.”

Obituary Elly (Dossing) Nielsen It is with much sadness we announce the passing of Elly (Dossing) Nielsen on Nov 7/2022. She is predeceased by her loving husband Osvald in 2013. Elly was born on April 8, 1925 in Odense, Denmark and emigrated to Canada in 1957 for a new life in Canada. She leaves behind two daughters - Sonja and Jette (Paul). She is survived by three grandchildren, Wayne (Sandy), Michael (Joann), and Tina (Clint) and two extended grandchildren Sharon (Stu) and Stella. Many grandchildren and great grandchildren. Both Osvald and Elly were members of the Legion in Chase for many years. Elly passed in Kamloops at the Hamlets in Westsyde. The whole family wants to thank the Hamlets staff for their exceptional caring for her for the last four years of her life. She will be sorely missed and was loved very much by all. A truly wonderful person with a pixie-like delightful sense of humour. No service by request.

First Nations News by Carolyn Parks Mintz Author & Journalist

CHANGES TO BC CHILD WELFARE LAWS WILL UPHOLD INDIGENOUS JURISDICTION As recently reported from the Office of the Premier, British Columbia is changing provincial legislation to remove barriers to Indigenous Peoples exercising jurisdiction over child and family services, and expressly recognizing this inherent right. The amendments will respect the entitlement of Indigenous communities to provide their own child and family services, to keep Indigenous children safely connected to their cultures and communities, and to reduce the disproportionate number of Indigenous children in provincial care. Further to the province’s adoption of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, changes to the Adoption Act and the Child, Family & Community Service Act have been introduced to the provincial parliament as of late October. The colonial era of Provincial control of child welfare will soon come to an end. A HOME FOR CHILDREN’S SHOES LEFT ON PARLIAMENT HILL IN 2021 Children’s shoes left on Parliament Hill during 2021 as a memorial to children who never made it back to their families after the discovery of suspected children’s graves near former Canadian residential school institutions have now been buried on a hill overlooking a First Nations operated school in Kitigan Zibi Anishinābeg, an Algonquin First Nation, about 130 kilometres north of Ottawa. It’s on that steep hill, within a

large circle of painted orange stones, that the shoes were buried inside birch bark baskets marked with local students’ handprints. As well as serving as a permanent remembrance memorial, it is hoped the hill site represents a source of resilience. SECWEPEMC LANDMARK UNVEILING POSTPONED The dedication and unveiling of the Landmark sculpture erected in Tsqủqw7e, ‘Little Bay’ (pronounced ch-kokw-a), the Secwépemc place-name for Chase Memorial Park, has been postponed until spring 2023. The Landmark was created by the late Mike “Savage” Peters, completed by Shayne D. Hunt, and David Jacob Harder, and is dedicated in memory of Michael (Mike) Alexander Peters. The sculpture is designed in the form of a Coyote Rock, with metalwork in the shapes of tree food caches used to store dried roots and salmon. Carvings in the metal represent oral histories shared by the Secwépemc Elders Advisory Committee from Adams Lake, Skwláx (Little Shuswap), Neskonlith and Splatsín First Nation communities. NATIONAL ABORIGINAL VETERANS DAY – NOVEMBER 8th The Federal Government established National Aboriginal Veterans Day on November 8, 1994 to honor the thousands of First Nations, Inuit, and Metis veterans who had never been recognized in Remembrance Day activities. In 1995, the first wreaths to honour Indigenous Veterans were laid at the National War Monument. Continued on page 7...

Someone stole my husband’s debit card last week.. I haven’t reported it, as they are spending less than him.

So the other day a little boy went to the Pharmacy to buy a box of tampons.. The Pharmacist asked the little boy if he knew what they were for. The boy replied: ‘well the advertisement says that you can ride a bike and swim with these, and at the moment I can’t do neither ‘

First Nations News It is estimated that over 12,000 Indigenous people volunteered in all three wars, including 7,000 from First Nations. Approximately 300 Indigenous service members lost their lives during those conflicts. On November 8th, Indigenous veterans and those lost are now honoured in many communities across Canada.

In addition to having to give up their First Nations status, they were exempt from conscription because First Nations individuals were not considered citizens of Canada (they were also unable to vote at that time) but, along with Metis, Inuit, and non-Status members, thousands of First Nations enlisted in Canadian armed services, despite the many challenges they faced in doing so. To this day, Indigenous First Peoples continue to serve in Canadian Armed Forces. NATIONAL CAUCUS OF ELECTED WOMEN LEADERS On October 13, Assembly of First Nations

continued from page 5....

Chief RoseAnne Archibald called upon women, two-spirit, and gender diverse leaders across Canada to engage with one another and discuss priorities in their respective communities. Approximately twenty-seven participants joined the virtual meeting to share key issues. More women, two-spirit, and gender diverse are being elected to leadership in many bands and tribal councils, as well as serving as Grand Chiefs. A 2019 census indicated that 20% of these front-runners have been elected as Chiefs and 20% serve as Councillors, resulting in 120 such leaders nationwide. EVERY CHILD MATTERS DAY Attended by the Adams Lake, Neskonlith, and Little Shuswap Lake community members, as well as Chase Village citizens, the event honoured the special day and the resilient survivors of residential schools. Thanks were extended to the Village of Chase for flying the Every Child Matters flag and to the Chase Heat

AND THE HEAT GOES ON AND OFF submitted by Chase Heat

Another week has passed and the Heat have been off and on in more ways then one. For the citizens of the area we have enjoyed power outages due to apparent substation deficiencies, playing havoc of course with daily activities. On the ice it’s another week of lose one win one, which is a habit that is getting old. With flashes of what could be, such as the four game winning streak, we watch a team that displays a vanilla personality. Battling neck and neck in the standings with the Kamloops Storm the Heat travelled on Tuesday November 8th for a face to face duel for two points. We can be brief in summary, the loops lads ran roughshod over the meek Heat. Through forty minutes of action 7 straight goals scored. In the 3rd period Carter Spring ruined the Storm goalie’s shutout bid, assisted by Bryan Fraser and Mikkel Hrechka. In the end a 7-1 well earned loss. Two days later the Kelowna Chiefs meet the Heat at the Art Holding Memorial Arena. The Chiefs are currently in last place in the KIJHL standings which is an oddity for them. Ripe for the pickings they scare the local fans by hanging



around for forty minutes. In the 1st the Okanagan squad scores first. Jalen Davidson ties it up from Trevor Kennedy and Aiden Brown. In the 2nd Kieran Armitage from Maddex Bignell and Owen Dean gets a go ahead goal. Kelowna responds and after two periods its 2-2. Bignell unassisted gets his 4th of the season, followed by Braeden Huth with his 5th. A 4-2 win for the Heat. Pumping Tires: It’s enjoyable to watch rookies rising to the challenges presented in the KIJHL. Upfront Armitage, Davidson and Bignell are heating up. The grit and skill displayed by the duo of Nahorney and Garries is fun to watch. The veteran trio of Garrett Martin, Spring and Huth has more to give in the tank, they just have to find that next gear. The rest will get mentioned in the weeks to come. Tuesday the 15th the locals ride north to face the 100 Mile House Wranglers. Friday the 18th they head east to battle the Eagles in Sicamous. Saturday night at our Chaos Castle the Chase Heat face the Summerland Steam at 7:00 pm. See you at the rink for a barn burner!
