After decades of building trust and positive relationships, with encouragement from Chief Vernon Saddleback, a much-needed building is in progress near the Band Administration Office of Samson Cree Nation.
The new Mamawi Atosketan Centre (MAC) will extend the work of a long-standing partner in private education for Maskwacis youth—the Alberta Conference of the Seventh-day Adventist Church—to the community's residential area. The MAC will offer a wide variety of programs and services for all ages.

The Tsholo Report
From the moment he wakes up, every day in Pastor Tsholo's Maskwacis ministry is an adventure.
Sometimes he's a soccer camp organizer at Ermineskin Arena with Kokums cheering on their grandkids and making lunch on the sidelines. Sometimes he's learning the ukulele alongside elementary kids at MANS. Whatever it is, this pastor isn't flying "solo" - even if that's how you say his name.
Always engaging with kids and community, catch the adventures of Tsholo and his Maskwacis Congregation friends in minute-or-less videos from the Res next door.
