Multiplex Name Honours Late Chief Linklater

After a valiant fight against pancreatic cancer, former Chief Norman Linklater passed away on October 17th, 2017.

Wake services were held the weekend after Norman passed away. A celebration of life was held on Monday, October 23 at OK School, followed by a feast at NNOC.

At the service, Chief Marcel Moody and Council announced that the new community multiplex will be named in Linklater’s honour. It is expected to be completed next year.

“He made so many contributions to our people and our community. He built up our pride and always worked toward our independence,” says Moody. “Naming this space after him is a fitting tribute. It will be a place for our Citizens to celebrate as a community. It will remind us all to do great things in that space.” Read the Newsletter for the complete story.
