Hello. My name is Trevor Greyeyes and I would like to take this opportunity to point out that this December First Nations Voice is our Christmas edition.

I would also like to wish our clients and readers a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. 

The weeks leading up to Christmas and, of course, the New Year celebrations hold some very warm memories for me.

As a kid, I remember my mother working very hard to make the holidays something special. It was a time for family.

Now that my mother is older I have taken up the mantle of cooking a complete turkey dinner for Christmas, and the earlier Thanksgiving holiday. And let me tell you, I know this is not an easy undertaking.

The realization of just how much work goes into preparing the dinner makes me appreciate my mother all the more for what she used to do because not only did she make the dinner but made sure there were plenty of presents for her children but also host and entertain various relatives.

A few months ago my Aunt Victoria Wilson passed away. She was the matriarch of a very large family and was well respected by her community. My condolences to her sons, daughters, grandchildren and great grandchildren.

And in November, I lost my Aunt Linda (Greyeyes) Winoski. Here's to my cousins Ben and Karen. Your mother was a remarkable woman. 

So keep those close to you and hold them warmly in your hearts
over this holiday season.

Distribution

I would like to talk about distribution of the First Nations Voice.

By the time this paper gets printed, I will have updated the latest edition of the First Nations Voice for our  website as well so that you can find at http://www.firstnationsvoice.com/ our distribution list and updated numbers of the copies printed per month.

Currently, the First Nations Voice prints 62,341 copies per month. 

And I encourage anyone with a suggestion for a better drop off point for our distribution to give me a call or message me on the contact information given in the editorial box on page 2 of the newspaper.

The vast majority of printed First Nation Voice copies go into home subscriber newspapers and can be targeted at specific postal codes. Just so our clients and readers know. 

Another significant portion goes to rural Manitoba.

First Nations are also drop off points.

While a number of papers are dropped off at various locations throughout the city such as the Indian Metis Friendship Centre in the North End and Neechi Commons to name just a couple of examples.

As well, Giant Tiger is also used as a location for distributing the paper, not only in Winnipeg but at other locations throughout the province.
