ARCHAEOLOGY TRAINING

This spring Heritage Consulting will be offering a 2-week Archaeological Field Technician Level 1 Training course. This will include 1 week of Classroom Teaching and 1 week of Field Study and fieldwork. This will be followed by 1 week paid work experience on a field project, after which the participants will be issued a Certificate. This will give certification and qualification for work on pipeline and energy company projects and preferred hiring. The course is open to family members and other First Nations persons. Costs have not yet been finalized but will probably be about $1,000 per person, plus meals and accomodation. The costs of meals and accomodation will be covered for registered members of the Mountain family. Get your band to fund the course costs.

GUESS WHAT - YOU'RE SPANISH

Or you could be. The contry of Spain will give Spanish citizenship to any of the First Nations descendants of the Cardinal family. By the way, in Spain the Cardial family were Jewish.

LIVE GIG

October 20 I will be doing a live evening Gig at Pallisades Center in Jasper. Rock On!!

PIPELINES

To bring the family up to date, as I have noted before, I an in consultation with Jasper Park and various pipeline companies and First Nations. Pipeline consultation includes the Trans Mountain Pipeline, Nova, Trans Canada and Enbridge, and the Treaty 2 Nations Alliance. I am also in consultation with the Dene Tha Nation and Enoch Cree Nation as the Lead Historian and Land Claims, and with Samson as the Heritage Resource Advisor.

ELECTION 2015

Federal Election is coming up this fall; go out and vote. The main contenders are Harper Conservatives Trudeau Liberals Mulcaire NDP (New Democratic Party) May Green Party Harper's Conservatives have been in power for over 10 years. The Conservatives are rieedled with Pork (that is, they award tons of money to themselves and their buddies - just like a Chief), they all belly up to the Public Trough to fill their own pockets with loot (like a Council), andt seems to be turning into a Kleptocracy (they steal what they can get away with from the public funds). Mulcaire and Trudeau do not appear to have much sense. Mulcaire is scheming and cynical and Trudeau naive. As for May and the Green Party, a bunch of nutcases out of touch with reality. Not a bunch that are really encouraging. However, a change of government normally cleans out the corruption, so vote for one of the others - even the Rhinocerous Party of there is one. Liberals usually shell out more money for aboriginal social programs, but Conservatives usually are more friendly to Aboriginal Rights and aboriginal issues. The Conservatives more-or-less accept the Supreme Court rulings on aboriginal rights, but try to distance them- selves as much as possible from implementing them. Liberals have tried to legislate Indians out of existence. On the other and, Conservatives don't do much for aboriginal communities. Of some 600 aboriginal communities in Canada, over 300 of them have no clean drinking water and another 300 have no schools. In the 10 years that the Conservatives have been in power they have done nothing to change this. Under international law, this is a Human Rights Crime. Liberals as a rule run well-managed government finances with a balanced budget. Conservatives as a rule tend to get deeply in debt, with little to show for it except making their own buddies wealthy. My suggestion, get out and vote

SCHOOL GRADUATION

School is about ready to start up again. This year I am offering to give a Graduation Gown to any of the girls in the family who graduate (matriculation/ Univerisity Admission) from High School, from College (Certificate/Diploma) or University (Bachelor Degree). The offer is open to families registered with the family society.

HONORING CEREMONY

I would like to propose that next year the family sponsor an Honoring Ceremony and Giveaway in honor of all our family members who have died. I pledge $1,000.00 towards such a ceremony.

REPRINTS

Over the next few months I hope to be able to reprint some of the articles that we ran back in 2008.

JASPER NATIONAL PARK

The offer from Jasper National Park for preferential treatment (waived fees) for members of the family is still open. To enter into an agreement with Jasper I need the participation of two family elders to sign the agreement. I am currently also trying to get the same deal with Banff National Park.

BOOKS

They are available from any bookstore, amazon.com or lulu.com. Lulu is cheapest. _______________________________________________________________________________
