The Unit I Elders Subcommittee is hosting a Candidate Forum on May 26, from 6 to 9 p.m. at Kewadin Casino in the Grand Island Room, located on the second floor.

The event is open to the Unit I candidates, chairperson candidates and the general public for a question-and-answer session. This is NOT a political debate forum.

On Page 8 of the April 29, 2016, issue of Win Awenen Nisitotung, Unit III Board Candidate Bonnie Culfa's profile should have begun with:

"Aanii, Boozhoo, Waubishkauh miisheekaehn n'dishnakas, my grandmother Lucielle Martell Muscoe-Ainse named me White Snapping-Turtle.

"I am not a politician, my job is to serve and I have always chosen a career path to serve. My family and I have always been working tribal members, proud of our heritage, including my mother: Philma Woodford- Mattox-Leazier who worked until age 88 selling Avon and boat tickets to Mackinac Island."

Please see Page 8 of the April 29, 2016, issue of Win Awenen Nisitotung (http://www.saulttribe.com/newsroom/sault-tribe-newspaper/recreation-download-files?folder=2016) to read Culfa's profile along with other Unit III candidates Ilene Moses and incumbent Bridgett Sorenson.

Win Awenen Nisitotung regrets the error.
