Hello! For those who don’t know me or only know me from talking on the phone or through email, I have provided a picture of me so that members of Wahta Mohawks can put a face to my name.
In saying that, I am Kristal Berwick and I am your Employment Officer and Social Service Administrator for Wahta Mohawks. I have been working for the band for 9 years and what I enjoy most about my job is the variety of opportunities that I get to help people.
A goal that I would like to see happen for the members of Wahta Mohawks is that a directory be created for every business or service that a member of Wahta can provide. This directory would be provided to every member so that we can be supporting our own people in purchasing services, crafts etc.Â With that in mind, I am asking that if you have a business card please mail it to me along with any further description that you would like added to the directory. This is an opportunity to get your business advertised so that First Nation people are supporting one another.
Business cards can be mailed to:Wahta Mohawks
