In addition to live-blogging the sessions, which took place on Monday and Tuesday and are scheduled to end today, Googoo has also been writing more in-depth articles, illustrated by the photos of Ku’ku’kews News photo editor Stephen Brake.

Googoo is an award-winning journalist from Indian Brook First Nation (Sipekne’katik) who has worked with the CBC, the Chronicle Herald and theĀ Aboriginal Peoples Television Network (APTN).
