Gull Bay First Nation – Guardian Angels
The reserve is 175 km north of Thunder Bay on Highway 527. There are about 300 people living on the First Nation.
The move to form a Chapter of the Guardian Angels came as a result of a visit to the First Nation this week by Ian Hodgkinson.
On Friday, May 14th, Hodgkinson also known internationally as Vampiro – internationally recognized wrestling champion, who is now Head of the Guardian Angels organization in Mexico City, was in the community to share his story of his transition – from angel, to devil, To hero – and how drugs continue to effect his decisions.
On Saturday night, in Thunder Bay Hodgkinson shared with the audience at the wrestling event at Fort William Gardens how the Gull Bay youth had made a decision to make a difference in their community by forming the first Chapter of the Guardian Angels in Northwestern Ontario.
Hodgkinson credits the youth with having the courage to step up to make a difference in their community.
There were two bus loads of youth from Gull Bay in attendance at the event to cheer on their new champion, whose mother Edna Hodgkinson is the Director of Health.
