At the recent Qalipu AGA in St. George’s, attendees met our Regional Chief and representative in the Assembly of First Nations (AFN), Saqmaw (Chief) Morley Googoo. Originally from Whycocomagh, Unama’ki (Cape Breton), Chief Morley learned during his time here that Googoo ancestors of his had previously lived in Ktaqmkuk (Newfoundland) and he was happy to bring the Googoos back.
Before leaving, he was kind enough to don his headdress and allow a few people to get pictures with him, including our own Chief Hayward Young.
Paul Pike, from the Friendship Centre, shared this info:
Register early for this great opportunity with the National Arts Centre. At the conclusion of the weekend, participants finished work will be showcased on the federal website for everyone to see and appreciate. Location for this workshop will be 329 Main St., St. George’s. Poster is attached. There are no fees.
Please share this info with any youth you think might be interested.
