KI woman joins Mohawk bike tour

Honour the Apology rallies Rallies were held across Canada, including in Thunder Bay, on July 25 to call on the federal government to honour the apology that the Prime Minister made to residential school survivors. The rallies were planned after research came out documenting malnourishment studies done on First Nations children. Clyde Moonias of Neskantaga, one of the Thunder Bay rally organizers, said the event was for healing.

Michelane Gliddy of KI will be travelling through Mohawk territory this summer by bicycle. The trip is intended to build friendship between native and nonnative peoples. Gliddy will travel over 300 kilometers from Akwesasne, New York to Belleville, Ontario. Along the way she will hold community events and teaching sessions in the places she stops.

Food symposium brings delegates together

Wabun youth come together

Addressing food system challenges across northern Ontario was addressed during the fourth annual NAN Food Symposium from July 23-25. Joseph LeBlanc, symposium organizer, said the conference is about learning how to use local resources, improve the cost and availability of products in the communities and share ideas and solutions. The conference also featured a film festival for the first time ever.

For the seventh consecutive year, youth from across the Wabun Tribal Council came together for a youth gathering. Eighty Wabun youth from six First Nations attended the gathering, which was split into junior and senior weeks. The Big Bear Claw Singers of Brunswick House First Nation performed traditional songs during the gathering, and the youth participated in a range of activities including a powwow.

Healing community with prayer walk Mishkeegogamang youth walking 300kms in honour of Slate Falls crash victims Christian Quequish Wawatay News

This past June, Mishkeegogamang First Nation band member Vincent Kakekayskung was waiting for his girlfriend to pick him up. What he didn’t know was his girlfriend, along with four others, had died tragically in a car accident near Slate Falls First Nation. “I waited for 24 hours, maybe,� said Kakekayskung. “Then I heard a vehicle had gone off the road after that. I’ve been struggling ever since.� Kakekayskung said he felt something hit him in the heart, a deep sadness. The thought of doing a healing walk for himself sprung up in his head. As he began to plan the healing walk, he decided it needed be more than about himself, so he decided to do a prayer walk to honour those who died in the crash. Slate Falls band members Gordon Carpenter, Samantha Loon, Claudia Loon, and John Bighead, along with Kimberly Whiskeyjack of Sioux Lookout were driving towards Slate Falls

for assistance in organizing the walk. “It’s a powerful thing when the young people do something like this,� Roundhead said. “It leaves me feeling

hopeful that the community is much stronger than people might suspect.� The walk began at the Mishkeegogamang band office at 11 a.m. on July 29. The youth will walk about 300 kilometres. “At the Slate Falls turn-off, near Sioux Lookout, we plan to hold a ceremony and prayers for the community, as well as for the walkers,� said Kakekayskung. “In the community itself, we will do another ceremony, and a feast.� Kakekayskung said the walk is expected to take five or six days. Bruce Kwandibens, a Mishkeegogamang band member and a walker for the prayer walk said he is walking to “support Vincent.� “I’m walking with him every step of the way to Slate Falls, I believe this is a good walk,� he said. Kwandibens said it has been an amazing experience so far. Edna Skunk is the health director for Mishkeegogamang. She drove with Daisy Spade, a diabetes worker in the community to make sure the walkers were well. “He lost his girlfriend to that tragic accident, and

that’s what he wanted to do, so we’re supporting them,� said Skunk. “It brings healing, I hope it opens those young people’s eyes to the importance of this walk.� She said they were there to talk with them if they needed someone to talk to, but for now they were eager, happy and high-spirited. “We talk to them about what comes along the way. Sometimes low feelings, and that’s perfectly normal,� said Skunk. They will be travelling by car with the walkers up to the Vermillion Bay junction near Sioux Lookout, Ontario. She said the walkers will be camping out in the wilderness when night falls.

We never had fresh vegetables.� Chicago would like to draw attention to false information,

More than 30 people gathered together on July 25 at Vickers Park in Thunder Bay to call on the federal government to “Honour the Apology� that Prime Minister Stephen Harper gave to residential school survivors on July 11, 2008. The event was planned in response to newly published research by Ian Mosby, a food historian at the University of Guelph, which shone light on the thousands of children who were unknowing subjects of nutritional experiments between 1942 and 1952. The experiments, conducted by federal government officials, resulted in children being malnourished and hungry. Attendees of the event were invited to share their stories and thoughts during an emotional time of reflection. Clyde Moonias of Neskantaga First Nation organized the event alongside Andrea Landry of Pays Plat First Nation. Moonias, or Ka-pe-ta-ya-way-wetung which means The One Coming with a Voice, planned the event to help others heal.

which he says the church and the government had provided. “I just want people to know that what the government and churches said they gave us was totally false,� shared Chicago. “What they fed us was very bad and very little.� After leaving residential school in 1964, Chicago spent time struggling as “a street person.� Since 1971, Chicago has been clean. He now receives support from his wife, his son, elders in Treaty 3 and his connection to his culture. Chicago says

that learning to laugh helped him to heal. “I go to my Elders in Treaty 3 when I need guidance,� Chicago shared. “That’s one of the things they’ve always told me. You can’t heal without crying. Once you start looking at things differently, you’ll be able to laugh. The tears from your eyes wash away the hurt, and then you find laughter.� Honour the Apology events were held in Winnipeg, Vancouver, Ottawa, Saskatoon, Edmonton, Sudbury and Thunder Bay on July 25th at noon.

Georgia Wilkins/Wawatay News

About 30 people joined a national rally during the Honour the Apology event in Thunder Bay. “The reason I did this was for healing,� Moonias said. “I’d like to show that no matter who we are, we all have a voice.� Moonias expressed a great sense of hope for Nishnawbe people healing from the residential school system and its effects. “We, as Nishnawbe people, once dominated the land,� said Moonias. “We roamed and hunted. We lived the good life. Since the residential schools, our children have been trauma-

tized. An apology cannot take back years of pain or suffering. In time, we will live the good life. We will thrust in our ways.� Jim Chicago, a residential school survivor and attendee of the event, agreed that it was helpful in healing. “Sometimes,� Chicago said, “you think you’re healed. But you’re not. What brought this back were the medical experiments. We went through that at St. Joe’s and at St. Mary’s.� Chicago, who attended St.

’m old enough to remember when the sharpening man came through our neighborhood. He had an old station wagon with his tools in the back. He had a slide out table top that stood on a pair of saw horses where he worked. He’d pull up to the curb and housewives would run out with scissors or knives or implements that needed an edge and he would hone them right there at the sidewalk. He had a couple kids and after school or on weekends they’d run down the street ahead of him with flyers and a hand bell. They’d ring the bell to let folks know he was coming and they’d stick flyers in the mailboxes of people who weren’t home. It was a family thing.

“He taught them his own skill. He empowered them...” You could tell that those kids were proud of their dad and the work that he did. And he showed it. He never rushed. He always took the time to talk to his customers. He’d ask about how often they used their tools or utensils. He asked what they were most often used for. He asked if they were happy with them and if they weren’t he would suggest other brands. He cared about people and the idea that his service could help them if only in a small way. What impressed me the most back then was that he actually tried to talk himself out of work. He would show people how to sharpen their own things. He took the time to show them how to sharpen lawn mower blades, ice skates, scythes, saws, chisels and bits. He taught them how to get the precise edge a particular tool required and how to maintain it. He taught them his own skill. He empowered them and eventually the sharpening man disappeared from neighbourhoods everywhere. I didn’t know it then but what I was seeing was honour. I was watching a man who was proud of his work and the service he provided. I was seeing a craftsman. I was witnessing an ethic that somehow seems to be in short shrift in a lot of places and a lot of occupations these days and we suffer from its lack. Honour. For the craft, the job, the work, the service and, most

importantly, of the customer. My wife has dealt with a lot of tradesmen and service providers over the last few years. As a rooming house and a revenue property landlord as well as private home owner, she’s needed to have a lot of work done on an ongoing basis on three different fronts. What’s struck us in our interactions with the professionals is how unprofessional a lot of them behave. She had an electrical contractor who was paid enormously for a refit of the rooming house. He took blatant shortcuts. He did the job as fast as he could so he could move on to the next and he left marginalized tenants on very low income with inadequate wiring in their rooms. When confronted, even though he failed an inspection and was made to do work over, he was offended and rude and took offense to her questions. She had a general contractor who continued to add cost to an accepted quote. He eventually left without starting the job when she wouldn’t accept the additional costs. Another did shoddy work on counter tops and plumbing yet expected full pay and deeply resented being shown his inefficient work. Sometimes when the job she needed doing was deemed too small, contractors just refused to take it on and never let her know. They just vanished without a word. It’s not just tradesmen either. A car dealer tried to cheat her on tires. The check out woman at the grocery store held up a long line while she chatted with her girl friend at the till. Literally everywhere we go in the world of commerce the idea of honour for the job and the customer seems to have disappeared like that old station wagon at the curb. I miss it. I miss amiable chatter when a job is agreed upon and finished satisfactorily. I miss people explaining how and why they need to do things and taking the time to show us how to do it ourselves. I miss feeling honoured. I miss feeling as though our job, our money and our business matters. Our world seems a lot colder in the absence of those attitudes. The sharpener guy cared. His job was maybe insignificant in the whole scheme of things, but he took pride in it. He did the best job possible. He cared about his customers. He took his time and he valued theirs. He was a person first and a tradesman after. Seemed a better world back then for all of that. I miss it.

veryone who has lost a father or mother understands what a terrible hole that makes in one’s life. It seemed that those people who were so much a part of our earliest years would always be around. In fact in talking with friends recently it dawned on us that most of the people we know are not even making it to their mid or late 70s. This seems more the case in First Nations where people are just not living as long as they should as a result of hard lives in remote communities. We are losing our Elders far too early because of diabetes, heart disease and cancer. Many First Nation people have had to survive hard times over the years when the only way they could make money was to trap or find jobs working for the government and in local stores. Most had no opportunities. In more recent years, with less time out on the land, my people have turned to modern fast foods and that is causing a lot of health problems. Alcohol and drugs have also contributed to

poor health for many Native people and that continues to be a problem. I have had all kinds of feelings in dealing with the passing of my father, Marius. I felt guilty for not having spent more time with him and my mom, I felt sad that he did not seem to really understand who I was and that he had to endure the residential school system and abuse as a child. I felt confused because he seemed to think that I would be better off never leaving my role as a tractor operator, carpenter or teacher assistant back home. He did not understand that writing could be a useful profession. He did not seem to appreciate the fact I was clean and sober. I also felt angry because I was upset that he had not made better choices in his lifestyle. Then through the healing of time I realized just how wonderful, strong, loving and dedicated my dad was to his wife and family. Dad grew up when times were very hard for First Nation people during the 1940s, 50s and 60s. He was a man of the land by tradition and even more by necessity because he needed to trap, hunt and fish to keep himself and our family fed. He felt racism when he left Attawapiskat to work on the railroad but he endured and was also awakened to

life in the modern world. He became a businessman and entrepreneur with all types of business start ups including contracting, restaurant and food services, laundromat, transportation and the construction and set up of a hotel. Through all of this and over the years he had his ups and downs and he struggled with all of the demons that most people deal with. This all took its toll. The strong and confident man I knew as a child became more and more weak as time marched on. I wonder now how he managed to keep things together as well as he did. Much of this had to do with the good fortune in meeting my mum Susan. She was integral in his foundation as a good man. He picked himself up from so many falls in life and dusted himself off and kept on and when he could not, mom was there to give him a boost and a place to rest his head and heart. All through my day and every day I think of my dad. He visits me in many things I do during my work about the yard or cottage with all the lessons he taught me. He comes to me in my dreams to say Wachiyeh. Still, I find it strange that he has gone from this life and I have wondered until recently where he might be. I found out.

The last time I talked with my mom she told me that just before he passed, dad had confided in her about a place he came upon when he was a young man. In those days he had nowhere to go to feel free except for the land. On his own, many times he would head out to far away places up and down the James Bay coast. He had all the skills he needed to survive alone and with nothing on the land for months and he did that often. Dad told mom that on one trapping voyage out on the land he came across a most spectacular site that thrilled him. He stumbled onto a beautiful lake and at one end of it stood an amisk weeshtoon (a beaver house) as tall as a mansion. It was as high as a three story house and stood majestically above the pine forest in the far northern wilderness. Dad, had been so excited by his find that he went straight to the structure and climbed it until he reached the very top where he sat back and enjoyed the view of the land, the trees and the great James Bay. He was on top of the world that day. I like to think that he has once again climbed that amazing beaver house and is sitting there watching over all of us with a content and peaceful look on his face and a broad smile.

NNEP Nursing Program is a winner at Lakehead University Sandra Cornell, RN, HBScN NNEP Manager Special to Wawatay News

We want to tell everyone in northwestern Ontario and the rest of Canada about the NNEP program, which was established in 1987. This means the Native Nurses Entry Program (NNEP) will be celebrating its 28th year as an access program to the Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BScN) degree program at Lakehead University! The program has consistently attracted and graduated students who have not only completed the access program, but have gone on to complete the four-year collaborative and in some cases three-year compressed BScN. Their success is a testament to the dedication and support offered to every student who enters the NNEP program at Lakehead University. In addition, we believe the success of this program has been built through our recognition and support for the needs and aspirations of the Nishnawbe Aski Nation (NAN) people. Lakehead and NAN have been working in partnership since the beginning of this program to ensure the people of the 49 First Nations in NAN, as well as all other First Nation communities across northwestern Ontario, Aboriginal individuals living in and near Thunder Bay and the Metis population, have access to quality education and skills development. In 1987, we had 14 Indigenous students enter the program and every year since we have worked hard to increase enrolment. We are excited to be building relationships with our graduates and their communi-

Each year since its inception, a solid number of NNEP graduates have become fully qualified BScN nurses. However, 2013 has been a very special year; Convocation 2013 saw 12 NNEP/BScN students graduate with their Bachelor of Science in Nursing! When polled, the students had this to say about their time in the NNEP program: Gerri Goodman, 2013 NNEP, BScN Graduate, form Animbigoo Zaagi’igan Anishinaabek stated, “the NNEP prepared me for the Nursing program, and what I liked the most about NNEP was the friendships I had developed, this was the biggest influence, we helped each other out personally and professionally.

Cheyenne Vandermeer, 3rd Year NNEP BScN Nursing student from Couchiching First Nation, stated, “the NNEP was another doorway for me to get into the Nursing Program, I was able to meet new people from various communities, and all-in-all it has been a valued experience”. Delphine Yellowhead, 2nd Year NNEP BScN Nursing student from Nibinamik First Nation stated, “although I struggled, the staff and faculty were very supportive. When I needed help on anything either personally or academically, they were very encouraging, they would lift me up when I was feeling down”. Jewelle Kakegamic, community member of Sandy lake First Nation, recent NNEP Graduate going into first year nursing stated “Without the NNEP program, I wouldn’t have been able to go on to the Nursing Program”.

It’s wonderful to hear from our students, and if you know anyone else that would like to share their story, please let us know, because we want to be able to tell everyone about our student successes and encourage them to join us here at Lakehead in whatever course they feel is right for them. Why is the NNEP an important part of the educational programs offered at Lakehead? We know how much northern communities need their own people working in the nursing stations, and how important it is to build capacity and pride within our own members. The Aboriginal community and their own students, adult learners, and professionals need to be on the front lines of health care and community support. Our people deserve to see their own graduates in place assisting young mothers and children, grand-

mothers, and community members with their health needs. Many students from all disciplines come to Lakehead because of their desire to offer services and support to the development of community, health and governance programs. Many have since returned to the north to complete their cycle of learning and take care of their Elders and members, and are proud to be able to help them. Education has been referred to as the new “the white buffalo” for Aboriginal people because it is becoming a sacred representation of strength and pride as Indigenous peoples right across Canada reconstitute their cultures, languages and pride in the future. Aboriginal people are going to school, young and old, and graduating from programs like NNEP, and offering assistance and

administrative, health and governance supports to their own people. Life-long learning is something that is increasingly meaningful in every community, and universities like Lakehead are embracing adult learners, and Native Access students who have decided to upgrade after dropping out of high school or working at jobs they would like to upgrade to careers. NNEP would also like to recognize and congratulate the 2012-2013 students who will be starting their first year of the BScN Program in the fall of 2013. The Office of Aboriginal Initiatives and our staff and teachers are here to help you succeed and we work hard to provide the supports, direction and a friendly smile that will make your tenure here at Lakehead not only educational, but filled with positive memories and new lifelong friendships. We know that the way to make life-long friends is to reach out to other students and build the confidence to approach the staff and faculty at NNEC, Eabametoong Education Authority, Matawa Tribal Council, Seven Generations Education Institute, the Office of Aboriginal Initiatives at Lakehead University, and wonderful staff at the Native Nurses Entry Program about our cultural and academic supports and the various services we offer. On behalf of the Native Nurses Entry Program (NNEP) management, staff and faculty, we would like to congratulate all of the students who started out in the NNEP within the last 28 years on their achievement of the Bachelor of Science Nursing Degree.

First Nations community members looking to become teachers are being invited to sign up for an accredited education program that allows students to stay in their home communities while studying. Northern Nishnawbe Education Council’s education program, in partnership with Brock University, is accepting applicants until August 15. Barry McLoughlin, director of lifelong learning at Northern Nishnawbe Education Council, said the program was designed as a partnership program with Brock University and is accredited by the Ontario College of Teachers. “We get a lot of students who are interested in the program, a lot of them work as teacher’s assitants at schools, in the communities, and they want a credential,� said McLoughlin. The program caters to students who either cannot or do not want to leave their communities for an extended period of time. “We currently use Minitaki Lodge as our base (20 minutes out of Sioux Lookout), and they’ll spend two weeks there for a course,� said McLoughlin. “Then they’ll take courses through distance education in the winters, which is very convenient for students who are working in the schools.� In their first year, students come out in the fall, winter, spring and summer. The second year, distance education courses are integrated. McLoughlin said they currently have a group of

students – the second group to join the program – in St. Catharines in southern Ontario at Brock University, where they are studying at the university for three weeks. In the fall, these students will be starting their practicums. “That’s the only time they actually go to Brock University, the rest of the time their courses are either at Minitaki Lodge, or Pelican Falls in the summertime,� said McLoughlin. The program is delivered over five years, and people with a GED or a high school diploma without any academic programs in their transcript can apply to this program, according to Marg Raynor, coordinator of the Bachelor of Education program for Brock University. “They can apply through their community, just like with any other educational funding, they have to be recommended by the education director in their home community to be admitted,� said Raynor. Raynor said one of the things she has noticed about the program is over the course of the five years, the students become like family, supporting each other. “That support network becomes just very important to them, and they are marked by hard work and persistence over the five years,� she said. The program began at the request of Nishnawbe-Aski Nation (NAN) approaching several universities with the hopes of developing a program for teacher training specifically geared towards the needs of First Nations communities, according to Raynor.

Moosonee police assault causes outrage Lenny Carpenter Wawatay News

Videos circulating through social media of Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) officers arresting three First Nations residents in Moosonee are causing outrage. The videos captured by local residents show an elderly woman getting kicked by an officer who was straddling a man on the ground. The officers were responding to a call on July 24 of a fight that broke out between two men in the parking lot of a downtown business. A witness who did not want to be named said the woman became involved during the arrest because she thought the officers were being “too rough� when arresting one of the men. The witness said the woman is the mother of the man. The police had been hitting the man in the head, which the witness described as being “unnecessary,� prompting the mother to act. As the officer was attempting to hold down the man, the woman – sitting on the ground – appears to reach for the hand of her son. The officer then kicks her in the chest, knocking her onto her back. Another video shows the mother writhing on the ground,

moaning in pain. A man – presumably a bystander – asks if the ambulance had been called. According to the witness, the woman and man were taken to hospital. The OPP issued a release on the incident, but it did not address the officer’s conduct during the arrest. The release stated that as a result of this incident, the OPP notified the province’s Special Investigations Unit (SIU). The SIU is a civilian law enforcement agency, independent of the police, that conducts criminal investigations into circumstances involving police and civilians that have resulted in serious injury, death or allegations of sexual assault. The officer who did the kicking was reportedly removed from the community following the incident. Comments posted on the video indicate it is not the first time the officer in question used “more force than necessary� when making arrests within the community. The OPP said the investigation is ongoing and charges are pending. The OPP did not respond to a call for comment on the officer’s conduct during the arrest.

Remembering missing and murdered women Stephanie Wesley Wawatay News

Tears 4 Justice, previously known as Walk 4 Justice, arrived in Thunder Bay on the weekend of July 20 and held an event at the Labour Center on July 22. The group of eight volunteers are currently walking across Canada in order to spread awareness on the issue of missing and murdered Aboriginal women. The group was met and housed by local supporters, including Sharon Johnson. Johnson has also been walking in memory of her sister, Sandra, whose murder in the East End of Thunder Bay in 1992 is still unsolved. Johnson hosts the annual Full Moon Memory Walk in Thunder Bay. “It’s important to support these walks because it’s hard to lose a family member that way. It’s like a wound that never heals,” Johnson said. Tears 4 Justice has been through Thunder Bay four times during the walk’s five years. Gladys Radek first came up with the idea of walking across Canada for missing and murdered Aboriginal women after being disillusioned with the results of a meeting she attended with the national chiefs in Gatineau, Quebec in 2008. Becky Bigcanoe, one of the walkers, said that the government keeps denying repeated calls for a national inquiry into missing and murdered Aboriginal women. Recently, the Conservative government denied another request from the premiers for a national inquiry on

The eight Tears 4 Justice walkers posed between two vehicles covered with photos of missing and murdered women are Aleck Clifton, Allison Manitowabi, Becky Bigcanoe, William Dick, Alaya Mcivor, Aggi Ettagiak, Mabel Todd, and Gladys Radek. The group departed from Nova Scotia on June 21 and is scheduled to arrive in Prince Rupert, BC in September. the issue. Bigcanoe said that it is hard to get people to become involved in events relating to missing and murdered Aboriginal women if the people have never experienced a similar loss. Mabel Todd, who was 73 when she became involved in Tears 4 Justice five years ago, said an Elder told her that when a loved one dies an unnatural death, the pain of that loss will remain. “When I am walking, I always pray for the women and children, men and youth too,” Todd said. During the Tears 4 Justice meeting in Thunder Bay, walkers and local supporters took time to share stories. “The newspapers don’t cover it, we don’t get coverage unless we tell them to come out,” Aleck Clifton said to the small

crowd. “That’s why I walk, for all the people who don’t have a voice.” Gloria Johnson, sister to Sandra and Sharon, expressed the same sentiment. “The media needs to be here,” she said. “When Sandra was found, the papers portrayed her as a street-worker. She was only 18, she was here for school. She was just doing things that kids normally do when she was taken.” “When I do talks like this, I’m always envisioning full tables, a full house,” Gloria said. “I don’t know how to make people understand what it’s like, the loss of a loved one.” Bigcanoe said that people should not accept the stereotyped images of women who go missing as being those involved in the sex trade and therefore not as valued. “Some women are forced into a lifestyle

because of poverty,” she said. William Dick, one of the walkers, was also involved in the lifestyle at an early age. He lost his mother when he was young. “I grew up in a really wrong way,” Dick said. “I entered the sex trade at a young age, experienced a hard road. If I had a mom, I think that she would have come and got me. A lot of kids have been through what I’ve been through, but nobody really notices.” Radek lost a niece along the infamous Highway of Tears in BC. She said the incident opened her eyes to the issue. She was in Vancouver during the time Robert Pickton was arrested for murdering women on a pig farm. The women who were killed were involved in the sex trade. “If those women had affordable housing and proper

resources for themselves, they wouldn’t have ended up on that farm,” Radek said. “These young women, children, young men and boys out there on the streets – they don’t have a choice in life but to be on those streets.” Radek said that the judicial system is failing women when perpetrators and criminals have more rights than they do. “When I think about these perpetrators who are in jail, where they get three meals a day, a bed, a room, TV, Internet, drugs, tobacco, clean pajamas, clean clothes – what does that tell society? Do we have to become a killer before we can be provided all of that? There’s something wrong with that system.” She mentioned the Prime Minister’s plan for “super jails.” “We don’t need super jails - we need affordable hous-

ing,” she said. “The women in this country need to have more available to them. If they have to go on welfare, they need to be able to put a roof over their children’s heads and food in their stomachs.” “People always say ‘well those are only Aboriginal women on your vehicles’ but they’re not,” Radek said. “It’s not our fault that the majority of women that are missing or murdered are Aboriginal. Those are just the facts.” Tears 4 Justice is compiling a list of recommendations from families of missing or murdered women to help create a national action plan on the issue. The group is active on Facebook. Those wishing to donate to or support the group can contact them via Facebook for more information, and also find out their current location and upcoming stops.

aims to connect those living across NAN territory so that they can address the region’s food system challenges while developing community-based solutions. Joseph LeBlanc, who organized the symposium, emphasized that the conference is about much more than learning how to cook. It’s about learning how to use local resources, improving the cost and availability of products in our communities, and connecting with others to share ideas and solutions. “They communicate best practices and discuss what’s been learned in an attempt to change the food system,� said LeBlanc. “People are excited to reconnect on an annual basis.� During a session that discussed The Northern Store, delegates from different communities were able to share their experiences and ideas regarding the transportation, arrival and sales of food to northern communities. Roy Kakegamic of Sandy Lake First Nation shared that his First Nation built their own building that Northern now leases from the community. Delegates from Fort Albany expressed interest and appreciation for the idea. Simon Frogg, an attendee from Wawakapewin First Nation, agreed that communication and networking are key to the ongoing success of the symposium. Delegates are given the opportunity to share unique ideas and opinions. “The value is meeting people who have similar interests,� Frogg said of coming to the conference year after year. “You forget that young people have different ideas. From the perspective of young people, you learn.� Frogg said that his interest in food began as a youth who had left the residential school system. “I grew up with food,� Frogg said. “I was part of a residential school. When I left and began community development activities a lot were traditional and surrounded by food. Harvesting, processing and protecting.� Frogg has continued his involvement in further developing the food system by creating a program for youth. “For the past six or seven years we’ve been involved in

developing an education program utilizing a land based system which involves teaching children traditional ways of working with food,� Frogg explains. “NAN got involved in the food sovereignty issues and we were invited to become part of the process.� Frogg now attends the conference primarily to share. “I help them do what they do,� Frogg said. “I lend my knowledge and expertise.� Frogg said that learning is key to the NAN Food Symposium. “A lot more people become knowledgeable – it’s not as simple as knowing about traditional foods. It’s more. People become aware.� One new initiative that aimed to help build awareness was the conference’s Sharing Our Stories Film Festival, held at the Paramount Theatre. Attendees had the opportunity to watch five short documentaries – two made by students in Confederation College’s Film Production program and three made by Powerline Films. Films made by Powerline Films are part of a provincewide project called Growing Good Food Ideas being done by Sustain Ontario in hopes of educating Ontario residents on food-related ideas and projects happening around them. Bannock, by Jason Hunter, and Keeping Part of My Tradition by Henry Beardy, which follows a father and son hunting for Canadian geese, were also shown at the festival. “This is great! A nice time to relax,� said an attendee who was happy to cool down after a busy first day which involved many discussions as well as sessions on traditional medicines and foods. In addition to opportunities to share, connect and learn during round-table sessions, delegates have also had the opportunity to attend skillbuilding workshops on skills such as the preservation of food by canning. Academics from Lakehead University also came in as guest speakers to share and further develop research. Additionally, the symposium featured sessions led by NAN community members and provided delegates with a delicious feast featuring some modern spins on traditional methods of cooking.

How to can moose meat Canning is an ideal way to preserve meat. Initially, it requires careful preparation, however, it enables one to prepare meals quickly and with ease once it is ready. What you will need: Pressure canner or a water bath Pressure canner rack Wide-mouthed jars (Mason jars work well because they are thick) 2-piece lids Knives Moose meat (tough meat will become tender when pressure cooked) Salt Other additions (i.e., onions, peppers, spices) 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9.

Barbara Strang of Poplar Hill First Nation teaches NAN Food Symposium attendees how to preserve jackfish.

Art of canning evolves with a new generation Georgia Wilkins Wawatay News

Before the 20th century, First Nations people began canning as a way to preserve food that they gathered, grew and hunted. Today, canning continues to prevail in the North as a way to provide nutritious, affordable and long-lasting food. Rhoda Meekis, from Wawakapewin First Nation, has always been a passionate canner. “My grandma used to can all kinds of stuff because we didn’t have a freezer,” Meekis said. “I recall doing it when I was nine. I think I always had a passion for preserving.” Meekis’s passion and knowledge of preservation is evident. For the NAN Food Symposium’s annual feast she and a small group prepared canned deer meat, jackfish, salmon, goose and moose during a day of workshops at the Regional Food Distribution Association in Thunder Bay. “With the fish,” Meekis explained, “we cooked it many ways to show that you can do it if you don’t have a lot. You do need vinegar to dissolve the bones.” Once the cans have been preserved in either a pressure cooker or a water bath, the contents are ready to eat. “It makes a fast meal,” said Meekis of the canned meats.

“You don’t have to go to McDonalds. I would add vegetables... it has already got onion, salt, pepper – there! You’ve got your stew, or you could make beef stroganoff.” Meekis explained that canning has become an important part of her lifestyle and insists that others should try it too. “It’s important for nutrition and budget,” Mee-

Remove gristle, bruised areas and fat off of cleaned moose meat. Tough meat is ideal for canning as the process will tenderize the meat. Cut moose meat into 1-inch-wide cubes. Add meat to clean, pint-sized jars, leaving 1 inch of space at the top. Add ½ teaspoon of salt to each jar of moose meat. Consider adding other spices or flavours, such as tomatoes, pepper, or onions. Prepare the pressure canner. Process the sealed jars for 15 minutes. Remove and cool jars. Test seal after 12 hours by tapping with a spoon. A ringing sound suggests that the jars are properly sealed. Additionally, the centre of the lid should not move. Store cans in a cool, dry place. They are ready for use anytime.

Similar methods can be used for other wild meats. Please keep in mind that improper canning methods can expose consumers to food poisoning. Be sure to carefully read and follow the instructions for the pressure canner that you are using to ensure safely kept and delicious moose meat.

ing, familiar ways of preserving meats, fish, vegetables and berries will always be appreciated.

kis said. “You can keep a small budget. We try to use cheaper, tough meat because it will get tender when you pressure-cook it. My philosophy is if you do things ahead of time, it’s all easier. All you do is open a can!” Meekis, who practices canning with her daughter, explained that her daughter puts a modern spin on preservation by adding new f lavours, such as Thai sauce. “My daughter tries new things,” Meekis explained as she picked up a jar of rose petal jelly that her daughter had prepared that day. “When she has questions, she goes on the internet.” Though canning may be evolv-

Filmmakers are encouraged to attend the Docs North workshop from September 4 to 8, where they can learn filmmaking skills and practice their art.

Emerging filmmakers invited to workshop Christian Quequish Wawatay News

Docs North, a Thunder Baybased film workshop organized by Flash Frame, will be hosting its third workshop program from September 4 to 8, and applications are open until August 9. “During the fiveday program, emerging and independent film, television and digital media producers from Northern and Northwestern Ontario learn about the art, craft and fundamentals of filmmaking from leading experts,” a Docs North press release reads. Kelly Saxberg, chair of the organizing committee for Docs North, said the workshop is geared towards more experienced filmmakers, but that it welcomes filmmakers of all levels of skill. “It’s for people that are making films in their communities,” said Saxberg. “There are a lot of people around like that.”

Travel grants and accommodations are available for filmmakers from urban, remote or rural communities in northern Ontario. Caleb Magiskan, an Aroland First Nation band member who lives in Thunder Bay has taken

the workshop in the past. Being a filmmaker is a dream of his. “I went [to the Docs North workshop] in 2011 and 2012,” said Magiskan. “I already had a video in the Bay Street Film Festival, so I thought it would be good to get out there and meet new filmmakers.” Magiskan said one of the

skills he took away from the film workshop was the ability to balance and budget time for a film. He said he’d never really dealt with due dates for projects before. “It was through Docs North workshop where we had to write, shoot and edit a video in one day and have it ready by the end of the day,” said Magiskan. He said they were not able to complete their short video for the workshop, but it was a meaningful experience, showing an unfinished film. Magiskan added that it made him consider how he spends his time while producing films. “I was invited to attend again, and I am willing to go,” said Magiskan. “But I do have a job and hopefully my job and dream do not clash.” Saxberg said the Docs North workshop was inspired by a workshop called, ‘Stories from Our Land’, a similar workshop she was able to see in Nunavut. “It was a workshop done

INSPECTION Inspection of Approved Aerial Herbicide Spraying Sapawe Forest The Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources (MNR) invites you to inspect the MNR-approved aerial herbicide spray project. As part of our ongoing efforts to regenerate and protect Ontario’s forests, selected stands on the Sapawe Forest will be sprayed with herbicide to control competing vegetation, starting on or about August 8, 2013. The herbicide VisionMax registration #27736 will be used. The approved project description and project plan for the aerial herbicide project is available for public inspection at the Atikokan MNR office and on the MNR public website at ontario.ca/forestplans beginning July 8, 2013 until March 31, 2014 when the annual work schedule expires. The Ontario Government Information Centre at 108 Saturn Avenue, Atikokan, provides access to the Internet. Interested and affected persons and organizations can arrange an appointment with MNR staff at the MNR District or Area Office to discuss the aerial herbicide project.

by the National Film Board of Canada, and they had all these Nunavut filmmakers from very small communities come into Iqaluit (Nunavut’s capital),” said Saxberg. She said they had two days of sessions learning about camera, sound, story and editing, animation and marketing from film industry mentors such as Zacharias Kunuk. To bring that concept back to Thunder Bay, Docs North brought forward Michelle Latimer, former head of ImagineNative – an indigenous media festival in Toronto – whose films have been featured at Sundance and the Toronto International Film Festival. Saxberg, who has been a filmmaker for 30 years, will also be mentoring in the workshop. She said they work collaboratively with those interested in coming to the workshops. Saxberg said they are really encouraging filmmakers from remote communities to participate in the workshop.

Web portal aims for youth in mining Lenny Carpenter Wawatay News

An online web portal aimed at helping First Nations youth explore the world of mining was launched on July 25. Learning2mine.ca is an interactive web portal developed by Oshki-Pimache-OWin Education & Training Institute that provides information on the mining industry and careers.

“With all the mining opportunities that will become available in the north, we want to see First Nations people employed...� - Rosie Mosquito

Rosie Mosquito, Oshki’s executive director, said the portal was developed with the upcoming mining opportunities within the Ring of Fire in mind as First Nations stand to benefit from such opportunities. “With all the mining opportunities that will become available in the north, we want to see First Nations people employed as engineers, environmental technicians, project managers, geophysicists, and in administration,� Mosquito said. “This new portal encourages young people to prepare for a career in the mining industry and most importantly provides them guidance in how to get

started.� Learning2Mine.ca features a mining game called Waaniike, where the player explores the land and discovers resources and artifacts using mining gear and equipment. The game combines traditional knowledge and modern mining practices and aims to build “mining literacy� in the player. The portal also incorporates videos, job profiles and a career visualizer that includes a questionnaire to match youth with careers in mining. Cameron Meshake, a youth from Aroland First Nation, said he found the portal to be engaging, and the story from the game Waaniike to be “interesting.� “I learned a lot about the mining industry and the vast opportunities and the rewards that come with careers in the mining industry and how it would benefit youth from across the province,� Meshake said. Learning2mine.ca was developed in partnership with Goldcorp, Cambrian College and Algoma Games for Health. An educational curriculum is being developed in partnership with North Caribou Lake First Nation, Sioux Hudson Literacy Council, Contact North and Creative eLearning Design. Learning2mine.ca is funded by the federal government through Human Resources and Skills Development Canada’s Aboriginal Skills and Partnership Fund.

Michelane Gliddy of KI will bicycle 300 kms through southern Ontario on a tour designed to bring Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people together.

KI woman joins bicycle tour through Mohawk territory Christian Quequish Wawatay News

A Kitchenuhmaykoosib Inninuwug First Nation band member will be travelling through Mohawk territory by bike this summer with a group of environmental cyclists. Michelane Gliddy, a band member from Kitchenuhmaykoosib Inninuwug, is an aspiring teacher and a sustainable living advocate. She said the trip is geared at bringing people together. “What inspired me to do this was, when I looked at the Otesha website, it was talking about developing the friendship between native people and non-native people,� said Gliddy. “I really wanted to be a part of that.� Gliddy said it combined two of her favorite things: cycling and sustainable living. The Otesha Project is a youth-led organization and a charity with the goal of challenging people living in Canada to live as sustainably as possible, said Otesha program coordinator Matt Schaff. “Both ecologically speaking

in terms of the environmental movement, and in terms of justice, building relationships amongst communities that are sustainable, and fair, and where all communities prosper,� said Schaaf. Gliddy’s bicycle trip will take her over 300 kilometres, from Akwesasne, New York to Belleville, Ontario. She joins ten other youth in Akwesasne on July 27, to spend four days in Mohawk territory while learning about the territory, studying medicinal plants, hanging out with other youth and putting on workshops. Gliddy will then host workshops in communities along the route during the trip to Belleville. The bike tour is a pilot project joint venture through Otesha and KAIROS, an ecumenical social justice organization, said Katy Quinn, program coordinator of Indigenous Rights for KAIROS. “The goal of the bike tour is pretty much bringing together aboriginal and non-aboriginal people to learn from each other, share an experience

together, and to help build bridges of understanding and respect,� said Quinn. One of the workshops the volunteers will be doing is called the blanket exercise. The purpose of this particular workshop is to increase understanding of the shared history as Aboriginal and nonAboriginal people in Canada, and to look at the nation to nation relationship, how it’s been eroded over the years due to government policies and attempts at assimilation, Quinn explained. She said it provided an opportunity for the volunteers to deepen their understanding of indigenous issues so that they could return from the trip with an increased capacity to be “change makers in their own communities.� “They’re going to brief us before the tour,� said Gliddy. “I know they’re going to adapt theatre and workshops, then the things we learn, we’re going to have to facilitate ourselves in each community.� Gliddy said she hopes to take what she learns from this trip to her home community.

Studying Anishinabemowin on the land Rick Garrick Wawatay News

A visit to check out the Legend of Green Mantle at Kakabeka Falls Provincial Park was one of the highlights in William Esquega’s Anishinabemowin language course. “We touched base on that even though it was summertime — I don’t like to do any legends during the summer,” said the former Confederation College language instructor originally from Sand Point. “We focused more on the story so we were able to do that.” Esquega began the introductory Ojibwa course this past January on Mondays and Thursdays, split up between afternoons and evenings to accommodate different schedules, and completed it in early July. “We incorporated area significances, what’s happened to history around this area,” Esquega said. “A lot of people just say different things about Thunder Bay, but in the area it was

known as Wequedong — The Great Bay. Anishinabe people to this day practice that saying: ‘I’ll see you in Wequedong — Thunder Bay.’” Esquega said Mt. McKay was also known as Thunder Mountain — Anemkiwajiw — in the past. “This (course) was done with more of a different approach, an Anishinabe approach,” Esquega said. “It involves the spirituality of the language and also the culture of the language plus the history of the Anishinabe people.” Esquega said his approach focuses on acquiring the language, not teaching the language. “Acquiring the language is through hearing, not just writing,” Esquega said. “So we must hear the language before we can speak it, just like as we were growing up, we heard our parents speak and after that we started speaking and after that we started writing. When we take that approach to Anishinabe language, I think the outcome is a lot better and more successful too.”

Esquega said the Kakabeka Falls visit featured stories and information about place names and different plants, such as tamarack, or agimatic in Anishnabemowin, which is used as a hardwood in the construction of tool handles and snowshoes. “It is easy to work with when it is wet and you steam it,” Esquega said. “It’s a very hard wood, so it took a lot of beating. It was a unique wood, used in many different ways, even in some of the medicines.” Esquega said many Anishinabemowin words are more complex than English words. “Anishinabe is a living language,” Esquega said, noting that the majority of the objects in Anishinabemowin are animate or alive. “So in an Anishinabe style of language a spirit is recognized in each object.” Esquega delivered the course through lectures, films and videos, hands-on activities such as birchbark collecting, storytelling, legend telling and some writing.

William Esquega’s Anishinabemowin language course involves the history of the area, as well as an “Anishinabe” approach to language learning. “All of my students walk away with an introduction of at least 12 to 16 phrases,” Esquega said. “What their name is, where they are from, what their clan is, what their Indian name is, as much as they want to reveal to a person or a group or a crowd is entirely up to them.” Esquega said the use of Anishinabemowin introductory

phrases encourages others to learn their own language. “It’s quite important in our doings in the Anishinabe culture,” Esquega said. “When you go to a powwow or even a ceremony, it’s nice to hear someone say who they are or where they are from in the language.” Esquega is currently

planning two Anishinabemowin courses for this fall, beginning in September, that are open to everybody, including all ages. “I’ve been struggling to get these programs off the road and get the sponsors and support,” Esquega said. “Sometimes that’s a little hard, but we always seem to manage at the end to put something together.”

Wabun youth gathering changing lives Xavier Kataquapit Special to Wawatay News

The seventh annual Wabun Youth Gathering held at the Eco Centre Lodge in Elk Lake featured workshops dealing with critical issues such as suicide prevention, family violence and bullying. Role playing and skits based on traditional and cultural teachings were utilized to educate participants. Eighty Wabun youth attended the event, which ran from July 15 to 26 and was sponsored by Wabun Tribal Council Health Services. The event was divided into two parts. The first week from July 15 to 19 was held for junior youth aged from eight to 12 and the second week from July 22 to 26 was for senior youth aged 13 to 18. The first week of events featured facilitators Craig Fox of Wikwemikong First Nation and Dana Cosgrove of Mattagami First Nation. Fox, a traditional teacher and dancer, instructed the male youth on preparations and ceremonies concerning powwows and dance. Cosgrove provided presentations for female youth in traditional dances, teachings and songs. The end of first week was celebrated with a mini powwow on July 18 developed and performed by the youth. The senior week featured a series of workshops by Clayton Small, who led discussions and education on suicide prevention skills and peer support. Small, a northern Cheyenne Native American who is based in Albuquerque, New Mexico is an Aboriginal leadership specialist who promotes primary suicide intervention techniques. Small also holds a Masters in Education and once held the position of secondary school principal. Jean Lemieux, Health Director of Wabun Health Services, pointed out that she has seen positive changes in the Wabun First Nations as a result of the Wabun Youth Gathering and the various workshops produced by the health department. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wee understand that we must work with our youth from an early age and give

them the skills and tools they need to become productive and healthy adults,â&#x20AC;? said Lemieux. Wabun Youth participants who have been attending the event over the years move into chaperone positions to assist the organizers and facilitators. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am kind of amazed that they asked me to help as a junior chaperone this year. I always look forward to coming to the gathering and it has helped me in so many ways through all the traditional teachings we get here,â&#x20AC;? said 14 year old Brent Boissoneau of Mattagami First Nation. For the first year ever the featured drum and singing group came from a Wabun community. The Big Bear Claw Singers of Brunswick House First Nation, led by Jason Saunders, performed traditional songs. Elder Vina Hendrix of Matachewan, who has been

attending the gathering for years, was once again on hand to provide teachings to the youth. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is one of the best things that has ever happened to our First Nations and it provides the opportunity for our youth to gather with each other, our leaders and elders to learn more about our culture and traditions,â&#x20AC;? commented Hendrix. Chief Walter Naveau of Mattagami First Nation, Chief Elenore Hendrix of Matachewan First Nation and Chief Marcia Martel Brown were on hand to lend their support and counsel to the event organizers and young people in attendance. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These young people are our leaders of tomorrow and it is up to us to make sure we do all we can to assist them to become strong and healthy. It makes me feel very proud and

Mike Archer, Community Crisis Coordinator, Wabun Health Services has been coordinating the event for the past seven years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Wabun Youth Gathering is the kind of healing that we need more of in our First Nations because it is based on the teachings of tradition and culture. We can only progress and make things better for ourselves as First Nation people if we decide that we really want change and to develop healthy and strong communities,â&#x20AC;? said Archer. Veteran senior Wabun youth participant Samuel Kloetstra of Mattagami First Nation pointed out that the event has provided him with confidence and many skills to deal with life. In fact he was selected to sit on the Minister of Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Student Advisory Council as an Aboriginal representative. The Wabun Youth Gathering came out of the vision and guidance of the late Elder Thomas Saunders, Brunswick House, who wanted to see the Wabun communities coming together in one gathering. Wabun Tribal Council is a regional territorial organization that represents the six First Nation communities of Beaverhouse, Brunswick House, Chapleau Ojibwe, Flying Post, Matachewan and Mattagami in northeastern Ontario.

Neskantaga art show highlights hope Shawn Bell Wawatay News

The paintings that Josh Kendricks displayed at a Toronto gallery last week have a lot of sadness in them. That sadness was a big part of his personal reality at the time the works were created. It also reflected the atmosphere in his community of Neskantaga. But talk to Kendricks about the art he is creating now and the overwhelming emotion is one of hope. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These paintings came from my depression, everybodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s depression,â&#x20AC;? Kendricks said of the three works on display in Toronto. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are sad faces on most of them. That is the foundation, where I came from. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But the next step is teaching to get out of depression. Those are the next ones, the ones Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m excited about,â&#x20AC;? the 23-year-old said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In all my drawings now Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m trying to put hope in there. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a sense now of what I want to do with art to help people, to help the youth connect with Elders and connect with their culture.â&#x20AC;? Kendricksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; work was on display at the Youth Voices of Neskantaga art show at the Beit Zatoun gallery in Toronto from July 26 to August 1, along with photos, poetry and music videos from other youth of Neskantaga. North-South Partnership for Children organized the gallery show, following up on a similar art show that was held in Neskantaga in May after the community declared a state of emergency over the prevalence

Kelvin Moonias, a Neskantaga band councilor, said North-Southâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s involvement in the community was much needed during a difficult time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m very happy that they came, glad somebody was there hearing our voices,â&#x20AC;? Moonias said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It saved our youth.â&#x20AC;? Moonias said the art show held in Neskantaga, which brought a large turnout of community members together, instilled a sense of pride in Neskantaga at how talented the youth of the community really are. Now that they have the chance to display their talents

in Toronto, Moonias said the youth of Neskantaga have been given a great opportunity.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We all have our own talents, and when everybody works together I believe that Neskantaga can do something to put itself on the map.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Josh Kendricks

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what good artists they are until I saw their work,â&#x20AC;? Moonias said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I hope

Josh Kendricks says his new paintings have moved beyond sadness, into the next step of how to get out of depression. In the future he plans to use art to help people connect to Elders and culture.

this opportunity opens the doors for our young people. I hope theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll go a long way with this.â&#x20AC;? Alyssa Moonias has been taking photographs of her community, friends and family for nearly a year. The 15-year-old called the chance to display her work to a Toronto audience â&#x20AC;&#x153;a big accomplishment.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;We made it this far with our art,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a big deal.â&#x20AC;? Alyssa Moonias said the community has embraced the talents of the youth, and has supported her and her peers in the creative process. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re finally coming together once again,â&#x20AC;? she said. As for Kendricks, he sees a

bright future for his art involving different mediums and different styles, what he calls an artistic â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;fusionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. He also emphasized that his art is growing as he gains age and experiences, into something that moves away from the depression of his early years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The more I learn, the more vivid it all becomes,â&#x20AC;? Kendricks said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My style has changed, and my works have more teachings in them, more positive meaning. These new ones are more complex, with more vision, and this is just the beginning. These are just the first steps.â&#x20AC;? Yet one of the lessons he

learned from the paintings that were displayed in Toronto will stick with him. Three of the paintings were drawn by Kendricks, and then painted by a group of youth from Neskantaga. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It made me realize you can bring people together through art,â&#x20AC;? Kendricks said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want to do more of that, have more people come together to paint my drawings. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We all have our own talents, and when everybody works together I believe that Neskantaga can do something to put itself on the map,â&#x20AC;? Kendricks said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If we put it all together, we can create everything from nothing.â&#x20AC;?
