Carrie Lynn Bennett

Hello everyone:  My name is Carrie Lynn Bennett, but everyone calls me Dee. I have filled my life with laughter and have a great sense of humor.  I have five beautiful children, who also live here in Henvey Inlet.

I believe in the development of the land codes.  I feel perhaps it’s been far too long that we haven’t had guidelines for the usage of our First Nation land.  As we go through this process I am learning new views in developing these guidelines.

Through visiting with other community members I have listened to their positions on topics and my fellow members help me contribute to the Lands management.  I look forward to seeing how it all comes together.

 

Elwood Ashawasegai Jr

Joined the committee June 2007.

Genevieve Solomon-Dubois

Aanii. Genevieve Solomon Dubois ndi-zhinikaaz. Mkwa ndodem.  Although I was raised was as an Anishnaabe-Kwe, Indian Affairs didn’t find that out until the 1980′s.  That’s when they added me to the list.  I chose to become a member of HIFN, since it’s where my father’s family belonged many years ago. I am the mother of four awesome children, a part-time student at Laurentian University and a full-time employee at Sudbury’s Native Child and Family Centre. A few years ago, I had the honour of working in Henvey.  It was a wonderful experience and allowed me to get to know community members, re-connect with long lost relatives and give back to my First Nation.  I currently sit on the Land Code Committee.  I know I will learn a lot, and hope to contribute something worthwhile.  Please remember Band Members are welcome to join us at anytime.  Chii miigwetch.

I carry that “Drum” with Pride, Dignity, and Honor. Learning on who I am as Anishnawbe and where our roots are is the greatest teaching.  It’s an experience with my partner, my children, and my community.

Ken Noble re-iterated the importance of the work on the draft land codes and progress. Also, the importance of keeping both on and off-reserve members informed of the process. He requested information on draft land codes be made available to off-reserve members.

Ken addressed some of the legal aspects, and will be speaking with Band lawyer Bill Taggart. Ken will also be working on some wording on specific clauses and is to report on it at a later meeting.  

Terry reported that water boundaries and natural resources will have their findings in the spring.

Jennifer began reviewing codes with committee. Morris asked how laws are to be enforced after land code ratification. And that there needs to be community input into law-making.
