Over the next few weeks Jasmine will be taking Alaska Highway stories. If you have a story about the construction of the Alaska Highway or the effects that the highway may have had on yourself or your family please contact her at 774-6313 or email jasmine.netsena@fnnation.ca.

In celebration of Fort Nelson First nation signing the 1910 Treaty 8 agreement with the government of Canada, the FNFN community put on a gathering this past weekend. It included horse rides, helicopter rides, crafts, a moose meat tent, traditional hand games, live music, and information booths for companies operating in the area. The Lands Department had two tents filled with displays and handed out treaty shells in the afternoon, but in the morning we cooked a pancake breakfast for the community!
