Former Land Code Committee
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.

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.

A Well Respected and loved man once Told me I would be leaving home, but would return with a gift for my People
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.
Why I am on the lands committee?
For the future of my children, our communities’ children. We need to look ahead to preserve this land, our land for the many generations yet to follow.

Joined the committee September 2007.
What I see from being a part of this project is productive change in the way we take care of our land. I would like to see change for the betterment of our community and for our future children. If I can be part of positive change I’ll do my best to make positive and productive progress.
