While most were out celebrating the arrival of the New Year, Edith Salt and Rylan Gull-Chum of Waswanipi were celebrating the birth of their second son, Cohen Gull-Chum, the first Cree baby born in 2012.


Delivered at 12:29 am on New Year’s Day and weighing a healthy 3.8 kilograms, Cohen Gull-Chum became the newest member of the Waswanipi First Nation. Edith Salt gave birth at the Hospital in Chibougamou where everything went well as both mother and child are healthy. Carlyle Gull-Chum has a new baby brother to start the year, making 2012 a year to be remembered.


Congratulations to the family on their new arrival and for winning the race to 2012.
