Perry Michael SHAWANA
By Jonathan SWAINGER, Wednesday, November 9, 2005, Page A20
Lawyer, aboriginal educator, mentor. Born March 11, 1964, in Blind River, Ontario Died June 1 in Victoria, British Columbia, of a heart attack, aged 41.
Those who had the pleasure of meeting Perry SHAWANA might have been struck by his quick mind, the mischievous glimmer in his eyes, his love of family and community, his seemingly endless supply of energy or, of course, Perry's impeccable sense of style. But no matter what the first impression was, the lasting sense was that of a person whose very identity was completely entwined with a tireless commitment to improving the lives of aboriginal people.
From the Serpent River First Nation, Mukwa (Bear) clan, in Cutler, Ontario, Perry remained true to his Anishanabe heritage. After pursuing a bachelor of arts, majoring in international relations at Glendon College at York University, Perry turned his sights toward the native law program at the University of Saskatchewan and then went on to complete his bachelor of law at the University of British Columbia in 1988.
After graduation, Perry established a private law practice in Prince George, British Columbia, where he began the work that touched so many lives throughout the province, especially in northern British Columbia. In 1990, he became in-house counsel for the Carrier Sekani Tribal Council and later assumed a similar role with the Lake Babine Nation.
Along with his partner Warner Adam and a collection of dedicated individuals, Perry created Northern Native Family Services to help members of the aboriginal community help themselves. Now known as Carrier Sekani Family Services, this organization is one of the most successful of its kind in British Columbia and stands as a testament to the commitment that Perry could inspire in others who, in turn, spurred Perry on to work even harder.
Despite the demands of his law practice and the countless hours with Carrier Sekani Family Services, in 2000 Perry became chairman of the First Nations Studies program at the University of Northern British Columbia. Provided the opportunity to shape post-secondary opportunities for first nations and non-first nations students alike, Perry took to the roles of teacher, mentor, researcher, and colleague with unbounded energy. His very presence in the university, as a proud Anishanabe (Ojibwa) man who had been adopted into the Carrier Sekani nation, stood as a compelling example of what one could achieve, through dedication and a desire to change things for the better.
With the blessing of University of Northern British Columbia, Perry entered the masters of law program at the University of Victoria in 2004. Prof. John McLaren recalls Perry's arrival at the university: "We knew immediately that a person of immense vitality had joined us. It soon became apparent that here was a person of intellectual power, wisdom beyond his years, great integrity, a caring instinct and an infectious sense of humour."
Combining his heritage and legal training, Perry embarked on a masters thesis that sought to protect Carrier medicine knowledge through Carrier law and tradition.
Perry was felled by a heart attack on June 1. At the time of his passing, he had been accepted in the doctoral program at the faculty of law.
This week, Perry will posthumously be awarded one of the first two masters of law degrees granted at the University of Victoria.
Everyone who knew Perry and witnessed his accomplishments cannot help but wonder just how far his enthusiasms and drive would surely have carried him.
Jonathan is Perry's friend and drew from comments by Warner Adams, John McLaren and Mary Tee Gee.

BLAKE, Beatrice May
At the age of 95 and in complete peace, May BLAKE passed away on October 19, 2005. May was care-giver extraordinaire to many children who remember her fondly and with love throughout their adulthood. She was trained as a nanny in England and joined her first family as a caregiver as a young teenager, no older than 15. She emigrated to Canada about 1932. Throughout her early years as a nanny in Canada, May befriended and looked out for other British nannies who would come to Toronto on two-year visas to care for the children of Canadian families. May brought them into the community of other nannies, made sure that they became acquainted with Toronto and sent them home again at the end of two years with farewell parties.
The adults for whom she cared as children and that she called "her charges" owe their values of honesty, integrity, generosity towards others and good humour to her teachings as they grew from infancy through childhood into eventual maturity. May was always proud of the achievements of "her charges" and followed their successes in life, sending congratulations their way and still providing advice as they made their path through life.
May has been a staunch supporter of Saint Margaret's Anglican Church for more than 70 years. Up until two years ago, she was a regular supporter of Saint Margaret's annual Christmas bazaar and rummage sales. She was a frequent visitor to the sick and shut-ins of her congregation. May BLAKE's life was a happy and fulfilled one.
May will be fondly remembered by her many Friends at her Church, including Muriel CAESAR, Len and Jean SOUTH, Trevor and Muriel McCONNELL and Jean FRASER.
She will also be lovingly remembered by "her charges" currently living in Canada, Edward BULMAN and his sister Elizabeth, Nadine, Jon and Paul LEVIN, Sean and Kalen McCOWAN, Denise DELLIO, and Alexandra and Laura ROBINSON. Jean SHAWN, George LEVIN, Anna JOHNSTON (formerly McCOWAN), Perry and Rae DELLIO, Michael ROBINSON and Dr. Gail ROBINSON, and all remember the fine and loving care May BLAKE provided for their children and the tremendous contribution she made to their family life.
Those who wish to celebrate May BLAKE's life may join together at Saint Margaret's Anglican Church, 53 Burnaby Boulevard, Toronto on Monday, October 24, 2005 at 1 p.m. May loved children all of her life and donations in her memory to Save the Children Canada, 300-4141 Yonge Street, Toronto M2P 2A8, would be greatly appreciated.
