“On behalf of Samahquam, I wish to inform Lil’wat that Q’aLaTKu7eM community is planning to make some major repairs to the cemeteries this summer.  Presently we have a planning committee to discuss this project. 

Samahquam has received a Settlement Agreement with the Department of Indian and Northern Affairs this year, signed by both parties.  Samahquam presented a budget to our membership in March 2011 this was adopted. 

The committee met on July 5, 2011 to brain-storm and list what will be required.  This afternoon, July 6, 2011 four of us went to the sight to take pictures, take notes and will be presented to the committee on July 7, 2011 at 7:00 pm for further discussion. 

Since we have shared interests to Challetkohum IR5 & 9, I felt that Lil’wat should be advised of our plans and has the opportunity to participate.  Should there be any questions or updates, please do not hesitate to contact me via email:  Thank you.
