The Gukalout Trust is your money – money for the Haisla Nation.
So we’re not leaving money management to anonymous business people in skyscrapers in Toronto.
A Trust will be managed by, appropriately, Trustees!
There are five Trustees in total which will manage things, plus one Administrative Trustee.
Out of the five Trustees, one will be a member appointed from Haisla Nation Council’s administration. The other four will be Haisla members – not from staff or a Council member – selected by the Haisla membership themselves in a vote.
As well, there will be non-trustee advisors for the Gukalout Trust, one youth and one elder representative.
These Trustees are the gatekeepers for the Trust, who will ensure it is handled responsibly so that it will last for generations.
