Lisa Spingle is the Player of the Week with the Ditnikwun

Player of the week

Lisa Spingle is the first Player of the Week with the new Ditnikwun, newly formed volleyball and culture club.

Ditnikwun, newly formed volleyball and culture club will showcase a member each week.

The very first player of the week for Ditnikwun, and posing in the Ditnikwun Volleyball jersey is: Lisa Spingle.  Lisa has recently moved to Fort St. James from Quebec and works at Conifex.

Spingle played a little volleyball in highschool but her real passion to join the team is to learn more of the local Carrier First Nations.

Spingle looks forward to going south with the team and as a poster player, enourages others to come out and learn more with the team. “Ditnikwun means Thunder Fire,” says Spingle.

Spingle tests her Carrier singing voice with the team once a week and would like others to emulate her.
