Keewaywin community mourns the loss of a respected elder

Today the reserve of Keewaywin out of respect for our late elder has shut down its offices in the community. David Kakegamic was believed to be in his late nineties when illness took our elder at 5 am at Margaret Cochenour Memorial Hospital. He was one of the original elders that seeked Keewaywin reserve status. As a respected elder in our community we will miss his wisdom and advice. He is survived by five sons and three daughters and lots of grandchildren and great grandchildren. His sons, Solly Kakegamic is the Keewaywin Chief, and Silas Kakegamic is a Keewaywin Councillor. Goyce Kakegamic the Nan Deputy Grand Chief. Our hearts and prayers go to family and friends.
