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

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.
