Cindy Lowley-Patrick, Interim Manager
Good day members of Lake Babine Nation, I would like to start by updating you on the LBNT Youth Forum that was held on June 24, 25 and 26, 2014 in Woyenne. It was a huge success and the attendance was 100 plus all three days. An excellent turn out. There were many presenters and speakers that addressed the youth and we had them work with Lisa Krebs on land use, planning and visioning. It was very positive and the feedback was exceptional. The next step is to follow up with the lands production and continue to work with the youth to keep them informed on the lands process. I would like to acknowledge the treaty staff and the hall staff for all their assistance during the forum and extending that appreciation to the parents of the children- you are doing a great job with them.

Well, another busy month. We had community meetings with the off reserve members, we got the youth in for a treaty Youth forum and we got the Chief and Council and the Managers in for an informational session at the University of Northern BC. And of course we are always doing research work; we are always doing something to make sure that our people get the most out of the treaty process.
Roger Patrick– Indigenous Planning Facilitator
On June 26, 2014, the Supreme Court of Canada announced that we have Aboriginal Title to our traditional territories. This case has been in the process for the past decade and is presented by the same lawyers that LBNT has been working within a few cases of specific claims cases with in out Treaty process. So it’s an exciting to see how far we will go with our cases.
There is seven parts of the chapters but this month we will only be talking about one of the seven.
