Naming OCIPs New Chief and Gift Giving Ceremony
Oct. 17, 2020 in Barrie, Ontario
Events, Ceremonies, Rites of Passage, etc. happen like the changing of the seasons, if we do not record that they happened, then they are lost. The naming of a New Chief is the same, if we don’t record it then it just slips away to be forgotten. With the election of Chief Elmer St.Pierre to CAPs National Chief and the Installment of Mona Denomme then OCIP Vice Chief to OCIP Chief is one that must not be forgotten. For the Great Creator and the Peoples has chosen these two great Leaders to lead us in different capacities. So the taking of Photos, giving of gifts, celebrating with each other is now written both in the wind and in our stories. How fitting was it to have this Ceremony on Oct. 17, 2020 in Barrie where so many Great meetings, Events, etc. have happened. It is here that many great OCIP moments were made and recorded.
