June 17, 1960 Lewis Jackson

Christian Island Reserve Band has a new chief and council. Elected by secret ballot Monday for a two-year term were Lewis Jackson, 43, the new chief and Clarence Assance, Gerald Monague, Abraham King and Leo Norton, councillors. A native of Christian Island, who has lived there all his life, the soft-spoken Chief Jackson is not new to the job for in 1940 he was elected to that post to complete the six months left in the term of Chief Roy Assance, who died in office.

Free Press in June 3, 1960 Christian Island Guides and Brownies

This was posted in the Free Press in June 3, 1960 It is directly quoted:

“One group which attracted a lot of interest at the Guide and Brownie rally in Midland Saturday were these Indian lassies from Christian Island Reserve. Seen with their leader, Miss Lillian Hawkins (rear), the troop was formed six years ago. The Guides are known as the Blue Canary and Rose troop, while the  Brownies are the “little people, fairies and gnomes”.”
