Thanks to Town of Ponoka for support

Reader thanks Town of Ponoka councillors for support of Samson powwow.

Dear Editor,

In response to the $250 town merchandise and $250 sponsorship funds support, it seems like it was in collaborate effort with the funds with our nation.

As a nation, we have been building “Asohkana” with our neighbours. The Cree word for Ponoka is Asohkan, ‘bridge’.

Since the early settlers arrived, and settled in Treaty# 6 Territory, our First Nation men helped clear the land and pick rocks for minimum wages in order to help establish the town of Ponoka.

We continue to bridge and support our neighbors by contributing to the economic development of Ponoka. My family and I are major buyers from Adam’s Chevrolet, we shop in Ponoka for food,

We support the Ponoka Stampede, my grandchildren and children attended school in Ponoka. We as a Nation have purchased our lands back in such as to the benefit the farming area of Ponoka. For all my years, I have been a part of Ponoka. I would like to thank Mayor Bonnett and the council that supported the donation.
