Study Turnover

SASKATCHEWAN INDIAN      OCTOBER 1973      v03 n09 p05  
Saskatoon - The Saskatoon District Chiefs Council will hold a special meeting October 19 at the Duck Lake Student Residence to discuss a timetable for the turnover of the residence to the Chiefs from the Department of Indian Affairs.

The Department if anxious to have the Chiefs take over the operation of the residence but the Chiefs have declined an immediate takeover saying they would prefer a gradual taking on of the responsibility.

Saskatoon Chiefs Council Chairman, Leo Cameron of Beardy's Reserve, says it is unlikely the Chiefs will take over the residence this year. They wish to stay involved, however, and gradually learn more of the operation of the residence, he said.
