On Wednesday evening, October 9th, His Honour, the Honourable Russell Mirasty, the Lieutenant Governor of Saskatchewan, presented eight awards to recipients from across the province. One of the Awards was a surprise to, and personally significant for, His Honour, as he presented to his niece, Mika Carriere, a teacher at Charlebois School in Cumberland House. Her Honour, Donna Mirasty, wife of the Lieutenant Governor, originally hails from the northern community in the Saskatchewan River Delta. The Award presented to Ms. Carriere recognized her work with students and elders in the community to document and celebrate its unique living heritage.
In his opening remarks, His Honour spoke eloquently about the value of heritage in the lives of Saskatchewan citizens, emphasizing that a sense of belonging and rootedness in culture contributes to the wellbeing of our families and communities. He highlighted his own experience growing up in northern Saskatchewan as a member of the Lac La Ronge Indian Band. Mr. Mirasty delivered greetings from Queen Elizabeth II in his mother tongue, Woodland Cree.
