Kwey Anii: Members of Greater Golden Lake
I hope this update finds you all in good health. I have some good news to share with you. We now have an office set up on the upper level of the O’Kenny Craft Spirits building which is across from the Best Western Hotel and Big Stop Irving’s. Our new address is 2 International Drive – 2nd Floor. Pembroke ON, K8A 6W8 and our new phone number is 613-732-7777. The old phone number 613-587-4360 will be forwarded to the new office for the time being but will be disconnected sometime in the future next year. My home phone, 613-687-2608 is no longer to be used as we have set office hours now.
Our office hours are: Monday to Thursday, 8:30am to 4:30pm and Friday, 8:30am to 2:00pm.
If you wish to drop in and see us, please call ahead, and make an appointment with one of my assistants, Paul or Denise. We will be sharing the same front entrance with O’Kenny’s Craft Spirits until some time in January, at which time we will be building an interior foyer which will separate us from O’Kenny’s. Until this is done, we would appreciate you making appointments.
I also want to let you know that our next community/Christmas meeting is on December 12, 2021, Doors open at 11:00 am, lunch at 12:00pm and the meeting starts at 1:00pm and will be at the Alice and Fraser Recreation Center, 1 Henan Rd, Pembroke, ON K8A 6W8. We can only allow vaccinated members to attend and you will have to show proof of vaccination, and wear masks unless you are eating.
We will give you further updates as we get them regarding ongoing treaty issues at that time. Stay well and get your booster shot if you want one.

A Message from your chief.
It has been brought to my attention that some of our hunters were not happy with the conservation letter that was part of the Moose draw mail out. In it we asked that only one deer per family be taken so that the herd is not decimated.
If you have a large family I can understand why you may have to take two deer to sustain your family. What I don’t abide by is hunters who go to a deer yard and shot every deer that they lay their eyes on. Any hunter who does this is not only a poor excuse for a hunter, he is also a poor excuse for a man. The Algonquins in the past were honorable hunters who only took what they needed to sustain their families, and I would like to think that we can continue to follow in their path.
If hunting in deeryards continue to happen there will be no deer left for our children and grandchildren and the next seven generations. I would like the names of the people who do this brought forth to me and they will be brought before “Chief and Council” to explain their actions. You are all protectors of the Deer, Moose and Elk herds, it is up to you to help me stop this practice from continuing. The moose herds are also dropping in numbers, and if we do not help sustain them by not over harvesting their numbers will also dwindle.
