    Friends, I am doing research on the two schools in or near East Lake (the public school in East Lake and the Ojibwe School on the site of the Wild Life Refuge on Rice Lake in the early 1900s. My dad, Ken Sheeks was a student at the East Lake School from 1919-1927. Please elaborate on the report by Julie Shingobe in this interview. Thanks, Brad Sheeks
