Aroland First Nation School Closure ( May 2002 )

The Johnny Therriault Memorial School in Aroland First Nation which has grades k - 8 has closed due to lack of co-operation from Indian Affairs to give us a school building for over 100 students. The community will be building tee pee's to provide schooling for the students, our leaders need support from other First Nations. We were promised a school building and now we are forced to fight for our inherited rights. For more info contact Aroland First Nation (807) 329-5333.
