This week on Bamoseda: Friday, May 14

Henvey Inlet First Nation has had it’s charitable registration revoked from the Canada Revenue Agency due to a tax evasion scheme.

The revocation  is a relief to the community’s Chief, who says the First Nation is in the midst of launching a civil suit in response to the findings of the audit. Peguis First Nation in Manitoba now has access to it’s land claims settlement funds  after a battle in court. The community’s lawyer explains what happened.

Health Canada has recently released an environmental health guide for Aboriginal communities to assess and address environmental concerns in their homes.

In Australia, a National Congress of Australia’s First Peoples has been formed. The new organization was formed to ensure that Aborigine and Torres Strait people have the opportunity to engage with a range of partners including governments, industry and philanthropric companies. There’s no more excuses why anyone can’t learn Anishinabe – free online classes are now available to everyone. Its the new project of a Toronto teacher.
