Onigaming First Nation youth Megan Bob and elder/band councillor Fred Kelly chatted as the new pontoon boat which the community has invested in sped out onto Crow Lake on Friday morning for its inaugural trip, where tobacco was offered at different sites along the lake. The new boat is not only an economic venture for the community, which hopes to set up charter trips with it, but also as a way to connect younger generations with the sites that are important to the community both historically and spiritually.
