Haisla Nation Council went to communities in April with its bold plan to take Haisla’s Own Source Revenue, gained through economic development benefits – and secure it for the better part of a century, so Haislas today and tomorrow will benefit from our work.
And we heard loud and clear from respondents that the Haisla want this. In fact, out of the completed surveys in April 95% of Haisla said ‘yes’ to the concept of the trust.
The Gukalout Trust would be built with Haisla members input in mind. That means Haisla will have a say in what programs are funded, and even any criteria for distributions for youth.
Before the Gukalout Trust is formalized, we are looking for your complete support.
You can follow updates about the Gukalout Trust online at this page under the ‘Gukalout’ tab, where you can sign up for weekly e-newsletters, read documents on the Trust, and watch videos.
And don’t miss the membership meetings, at 5 pm on the follow dates:
Vancouver, September 17, Hilton Metrotown.
Terrace, September 18, Best Western Plus.
Prince Rupert, September 20, Crest Hotel.
Kitamaat Village, September 21, Haisla Recreation Centre.
