generations. We will pay for it in

the long run if we take the cash

individual. Provides only temporary


Should be kept in trust to take care

of future generations when there

will be no status benefits available.

Should be doing this already for

kids without status.

Does it matter what we say, the

  • and/or Resource based committees initiated by
  • the department or by community members
  • (ie: Mouth of the Pic Committee, Land Claim
  • Committee, etc.)

Additional comments/suggestions:

This information was gathered in November 2008, during the Pic River First Nation strategic planning session as part of the Administration survey distributed to community members. All information was compiled and organized by the Lands and Resources Assistant, Juanita Starr, for community information purposes and to assist with the Strategic Planning Initiative for the Lands and Resources department.

  • Need to measure the success of programs, projects and
  • reporting procedures
  • The suggested committee should not be made up of
  • band councilors.
  • More community members need to be involved ie: Youth,
  • Elders
  • Should be more focused with the community because
  • this feels like this “fight” is not for the community.
  • (Comment based on the Land Claim)
  • There should be more involvement from the community
  • regarding the Land Claim.
