Featuring Special Guests:
Tom Jackson

Actor, singer and activist, Tom Jackson claims music is his first love. It was the social heartbeat of his early family life, and after being handed a guitar at age 10, he is rarely seen without a six-stringed instrument by his side. Tom has recorded 15 albums , and his rich bass baritone is recognizable to music and television fans across the country. From Chief Peter Kenidi on the CBC hit series North of 60, to feature roles on Star Trek, Law & Order, Meeshee The Water Giant and Kinwalkers, he is ranked among the famous 50 personalities of the first 50 years of television in Canada.

Perry Bellgarde

 Perry Bellegarde’s career has been marked by an unwavering commitment to be of service to the concerns of First Nations in Canada. Currently, the Chief of the Little Black Bear First Nation, he has also served as the Tribal Chair of the Touchwood-File Hills-Qu’Appelle Tribal Council, the Chief of the Federation of Saskatchewan Indian Nations (FSIN), and Regional Vice Chief for the Assembly of First Nations (AFN). In addition, he served as Vice President of Labour and Aboriginal Initiatives for the Crown Investments Corporation. 

Charlotte Ross.

Charlotte Ross [BA Hons.; P.G.D.; M. C. Ed.] is a band member of the Montreal Lake Cree Nation. She is the youngest daughter of the late Elizabeth Sarah Ross [Anderson] and the late Edward Sandy Ross. Charlotte has two sons, Keegan and Steven and is happily involved with Paul Sharpe as her co-navigator in the journey of life.

Charlotte completed her elementary and secondary education in northern Saskatchewan. Like many other families and communities battling economic and cultural displacement, she experienced family violence due to alcohol abuse resulting in family tragedy.

Determined to make a difference in her life and that of her family and community, Charlotte excelled academically while also balancing her contributions to student leadership and her local community. For the past two decades she has been instrumental in establishing Aboriginal student support services and programs within mainstream university systems.

Our theme this year is Honour Who You Are: Building on Your Strengths. We are planning for another successful Gala of learners, practitioners, and leaders in Aboriginal literacy to be held this time in southern Saskatchewan in the beautiful city of Regina. Literacy Awards for Elder, Business/Organization, Practitioner, Learner and Youth will be handed out.

The evening will feature a silent auction, 50/50 draw and door prizes.
