Housing and First Nations communities is central. Everything stems from housing, quality of education, your health, your social life, the lands. The First Nation Market Housing Fund program that is available through our community has really improved the quality of housing specifically for our family in terms of comfort, sustainability, energy efficiency, as you know, and safety and security, which all First Nation housing should be striving for.

Bingwi Neyaashi Sand Point was an existing community back in the middle of the 20th century. What happened in the 20th century was a series of floods on Lake Nipigon. I think 2010 is when they first got the land back and we’ve been developing it ever since. The Fund has been instrumental in ensuring that BNA had the building blocks in place for its development. Without the support of our building blocks to ensure that we had the right pieces in place prior to proceeding with our development, we would not be where we are today and the Diversion. The Fund’s able to really work directly with members on a day-to-day basis to make sure that they have the information that they need to make the right decisions.

Just follow your dreams, if you want something you go get it and it takes a lot of support from other people. Don’t give up. You have to keep going no matter what. There is also something that you are going to run into. You just have to push through, and you will get it.
