Project Team, Ron Hyggen, Mason Medynski, Michelle
Flamont and Mike Tanton have put countless hours into the
development and creation of the Photo Gallery

My experience working
on this web page at the Saskatchewan Indian
Culture Centre has been extremely rewarding. The
staff has been extremely supportive with our work
on the Aboriginal Faces project. I would
especially like to thank Duane Turner for his
'above and beyond the call of duty' help. Without
his expertise in web page design this page would
not have turned out as well as it did. My team,
which included Michelle Flamont (or the warden,
he, he!) who kept everything very organized which
made the web page creation a breeze; Mason
Medynski who always kept the office atmosphere
light and fun to work in, and Mike Tanton who's
calm and cool demeanor always made us first time
summer students feel at home. Over all the team
as a whole made the summer an experience to
remember and for that I sincerely thank them!

Metis, raised mostly in Saskatoon. Mason is in his first year

I found that working
on the Aboriginal Faces of Saskatchewan: A Photo
Gallery to be very fun and interesting. I learned
a lot about Saskatchewan's prominent Aboriginal
and I learned
a lot about computers
and web page design. I
enjoyed working with Michelle, Ron and Mike and I
hope that this site will be informative for all
the people that check it out.

I found the
project to be pleasing and rewarding. I enjoyed
expanding my knowledge in computer technology and
I am more confident in my ability to utilize a
computer to its fullest capability. The
biographies of the First Nation and Metis men and
women of Saskatchewan have inspired and motivated
me to succeed academically in post-secondary and
in life. I am fortunate in having the opportunity
to work with Ron, Mason, and Mike for they made
the work experience fun and exciting.
|Mike is a Cree-Metis and
a member of the Metis Nation of Saskatchewan. He
is entering his second year in arts and science

Working on the
Aboriginal Faces of Saskatchewan project was a
great experience. Working with Ron, Mason, and
Michelle was more fun than I had expected. The
summer went by very fast and I am very thankful
for the opportunity to be a part of such an
interesting project. I am excited about going
back to school and will eventually expect to see
my biography included in the website as a
prominent Aboriginal Face of Saskatchewan not
just on the project team. I would like to thank
the Saskatchewan Indian Cultural Center for the
great time this summer.
