Hello, My name is John Sam from Nickeyeah Creek. My late mother was Margaret Bent who was originally from Springs near Merritt and my late father was Eric Sam. I have had two fathers since Dad passed away. One was Smith Bent who was a veteran from Shulus and who served in Tank corp. My other father was Reynold Blatchford who was a rancher, Councilor and one who spoke his mind truthfully.
I have recently lived in Williams Lake and have been there for six years where I managed a Band owned Gas Station called Chief Will Yum Gas Bar and Store.
I have experience in Business Plans, Cash Flows, funding sources for Projects to be undertaken.
At present I am assisting LFN in the Agriculture Committee.
I am looking forward to returning home to assist the LFN in various Projects that are on the go and ones that they want to start.
P.S. I am in the midst of writing a book about my experiences as a pupil at St. George's Indian Residential School where I attended from 1953 until 1964.
All my Relations
