NOGAMINE

It is with great sadness that the family of Reiko Nogamine announce her passing on Friday, August 31, 2018 at the age of 83 years with her family by her side. She was the beloved wife of Shigeru Nogamine of Lethbridge, loving mother of Mary (Ken Nishi) of Calgary and Bachan to Jordan, Carly and Kevin Nishi. She is also survived by her brothers Shinobu (Tamiko) of Osaka, Japan; Tom (Setsuko) of Lethbridge and Tsukasa (Chiyoko) of Miyazaki, Japan and numerous nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her son Jim, parents Yukichi and Fumi, brother Isamu and sister Kyoko.

Reiko was born on April 1, 1935 in Kagoshima, Japan. She and Shigeru with Jim and Mary immigrated to the Vauxhall area in September, 1967 as part of the first group of Japanese to be allowed to immigrate to Canada, post-war. This group formed their extended “Canadian family” and in 2017, they celebrated their 50th anniversary of being in Canada with their children and grandchildren. They lived and worked in the Vauxhall and Taber area from 1967 – 1976 after which they bought their own farm west of Burdett. They farmed from 1976 to 2007. She also worked outside the farm at Shimbashi’s and Lamb Weston potato facilities where she made many friends – celebrating their birthdays with gifts of home made sushi, pickles and desserts.

She was an avid gardener throughout her life – toiling for hours to produce bountiful amounts of vegetables which she generously shared with her family, friends and neighbours. She was also known for the many kinds of Japanese pickles – tsukemono which she also shared with family and friends.

After retirement, they moved to Lethbridge, where the back yard did not provide enough room to grow all the produce she wanted to grow, so they rented a community garden plot to continue to produce enough vegetables to share. She was a hard working, caring and generous person, always thinking of others before herself and always calling to see how the grandkids were doing in school and whether they got home safely from their many school and sporting events and their commutes to university. She always had delicious Japanese meals ready to eat whenever the grandkids would visit with extra home made munju and sushi to take home with them.

Friends may meet with the family on Wednesday, September 5, 2018 between 7:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. at CHRISTENSEN SALMON GENERATIONS FUNERAL HOME, 703 – 13 Street North, Lethbridge.

WEASEL MOCCASIN

DELORES WEASEL MOCCASIN (nee Mountain Horse), A’paissaapiaakii passed away peacefully surrounded by her husband Peter Weasel Moccasin and her children, as the sun dawned, in Lethbridge, AB on Monday, August 27, 2018 at the age of 63 years. Delores was born in Cardston, AB, was raised and resided on the Blood Reserve, AB. Delores was raised by her maternal Grandmother Aahkiaapikkitstaakii, Annie Mountain Horse (nee Crow Chief). Born on March 2, 1955, Delores was the only daughter to Pete Standing Alone and Shirley Mountain Horse; respectively between her parents, she was blessed with numerous siblings.

Delores became a mother to Marcia and Crystal and she raised her girls as a single mother until 1988 when she met the love of her life Peter Weasel Moccasin. For Delores, Marcia and Crystal, the blessing of love, laughter, strength and commitment from Peter was more than they could wish for. Along with Peter joining Delores’s family, she gained a son, Garrett. Together, Delores and Peter’s family continued to grow with their son Dwight and daughter Mikayla. From the lives of their children, Delores was a cherished and attentive Grandmother to Cole, Tristan, Raiden, Karsen, Jakob, Dashal, Kai, Luca and Dregan. Delores’s early life brought many memories with her Grandmother, family and friends growing up in the Blood Reserve community of Moses Lake. Aahkiaapikkitstaakii kept Delores at home from school up to the age of eight years old before attending St. Paul’s Residential School. Her early schooling also included schools in Magrath and Cardston; she graduated from Cardston High School in 1973. Upon graduation she briefly attended Mount Royal College before she began her long time career with Blood Tribe Administration (BTA). Delores began working for BTA at the age of nineteen, at the time of her passing she was employed with Blood Tribe Public Works, thus she gave forty-four years of dedication to her community’s administration.

Delores’s greatest commitment to her community came in 1982, at the age of 27, when she was approached by Rosella White Feathers to join the Moa’to’kiiksi (Buffalo Women’s Society). Having been raised with Niitsitapiipaitapiiyssin (traditional life ways of the Blackfoot people), Delores understood it was time to carry on this life her Grandmother Aahkiaapikkitstaakii lived; with a good heart she took on this responsibility. Delores was a member of the Moa’to’kiiksi for eight years and in 1990 she transferred to Rita Tallman. One of her early mentors, Mark Old Shoes Sr., prepared Delores for the life of ceremony she would embark upon. It was through Mark’s eternal guidance that Delores and Peter came together.

Delores and Peter were married on November 10, 1990 and in 1994 together they joined the Iitsskinnayiiks (Sacred Horn Society) with their partner Bob Burns as bundle holders of Piino’toiyi. They were holders of the bundle for four years and in 1998 transferred to Norbert and Mary Louise Fox. In 1995, Delores and Peter were gifted the opportunity to become Niinaimsskaiksi (Thunder pipe bundle holders). Along with two of their five children, Crystal and Dwight, they were transferred the bundle Sinai’ahkoyinnimaan. As a family, they were holders of Sinai’ahkoyinnimaan for five years; they transferred the bundle in 2000 to Leo and Elizabeth Day Chief. From the many years of being involved in our sacred societies and their commitment to a sacred way of life, together Delores and Peter are called upon for guidance in the community. Delores is survived by her father Pete Standing Alone (Betty Bastien), her husband Peter Weasel Moccasin; her children, Marcia (Aloyuisius) Black Water, Crystal Mountain Horse (Dillon Soldier), Garrett Weasel Moccasin, Dwight (Camina) Weasel Moccasin, Mikayla Weasel Moccasin; daughter-in-law Tricia “Sunshine” Weasel Moccasin; grandchildren Cole, Tristan and Karsen Black Water; Jakob and Dashal Soldier; Raiden and Kai Weasel Moccasin; Dregan Weasel Moccasin; Luca Weasel Moccasin; maternal siblings Brent Singer (Mavis Smith), Alvine Mountain Horse, Ivan Singer (Kailey Shade), Carolyn Weasel Fat, Ray Mountain Horse, Marvin Singer and sister-in-law Roana Weasel Head; paternal siblings Rowena Standing Alone, Travis Plaited Hair (Veronica Calf Robe), Bruce Standing Alone, Pat (Dawn) Standing Alone, Sally Plaited Hair, Lyle Standing Alone, Blake (Wendy) Standing Alone, Fagan Standing Alone (Jolie Weasel Head); special friends (adopted family) Marie and Don Shade, Bob and Charlene Burns, Tyson and Lona Running Wolf, Wendy Bremner; sisters-in-law Joyce Old Shoes and Lauretta Many Bears; aunts May Weasel Fat, Sophie Tailfeathers, Ruth Quesnelle (Carmen McLenaghan), Nita Wells, Theresa Mistaken Chief, Nina (Eric) Buckskin , Yvonne Morning Bird; uncles Alfred Standing Alone, Jerry Wells, Gordon (Natalie) Morning Bird, Bernard (Agnes) Shouting; special cousins Alphonse (Marilyn) Standing Alone, Joanne Mountain Horse-Twigg, Sandra Singer (Barney Day Chief).
