June Meeting Summary

Chief Hayward Young welcomed a small but interested crowd to the June meeting for IHFN.  After Vice-Chief Tianna Butler and Secretary Jarrett Brumsey reviewed the minutes from previous meetings, Chief Hayward discussed a variety of topics including the court cases that may affect Qalipu First Nation applicants and members, the present status of the band’s incorporation and the state of the band’s office at the Boyd & Bungay building.

Then he introduced Shane Snook, who has been hired under a JCP, which was made possible by the efforts of Chief Liz from No’kmaq Village. Shane will focus his time on building the membership of IHFN over the next year and in applying for program and project grants. Once a phoneline has been installed at the office, that contact information will be made available on this site, but for the present, you can send emails to IndianHeadFNgmail.com.

Additionally, Treasurer Gwen Lomond provided the present status of the band’s finances, after which the floor was opened for discussion. Soon, the final meeting before the summer break was concluded, with a mention of our next meeting, which will be on Thursday, September 27 at 7:00pm in the lecture theatre of the College of the North Atlantic.
