"The Club Star" made its first appearance in mimeograph form in 1945.  It was a newsletter published out of the Garnier Residential School and was met with an enthusiastic reception from the boys, their parents, and friends of the school. 

The name Club Star was suggested by Henry Deere. The Club was a special prerogative of the Senior Boys.  It was open nightly from 9pm to 10pm and was a place where they could play bridge, checkers and other games, read the newspapers and listen to the radio.  The idea of the paper originated from the Club and the paper mainly recorded the activities of the Senior Boys. The newsletter's tagline was "A monthly bulletin published by Garnier Residential School, Spanish, Ont."

In 1953 under new editorship the publication's name was changed to "The Garnier Star." This version of the school newspaper was edited and guided by staff at Garnier.  A later iteration of the same publication known as the "Garnier Club Star".  It was first published in September 1957.

It was edited and produced by the Intermediate Garnier Club (grades 7 & 8).The Intermediate Garnier Club was a student run club that was responsible for planning various activities for the spiritual, social, speech and sports committees.  The club also worked to published the monthly school newsletter.  Subsequent monthly issues of the "Garnier Club Star" were created by the student club in conjunction with the high school boys and girls.

History Biographical: 

The Assembly of First Nations (AFN) developed out of the National Indian Brotherhood (NIB) which was established in 1968. The NIB was established by the status and treaty aboriginal groups in Canada as a means of creating a unified organization to confront the Canadian government regarding injustices committed against aboriginals.

From 1969 to the present the National Indian Brotherhood has became a lobby group for aboriginal rights in Canada under the leadership of individuals such as George Manuel, Walter Dieter, Noel Starblanket, Delbert Riley, Dr. David Ahenakew, Georges Erasmus, Ovide Mercredi, Phil Fontaine, Matthew Coon Come.

In 1982 the NIB made the transition into the Assembly of First Nations (AFN). The AFN was established as an 'Organization of First Nations Government Leaders.' The AFN became the secretariat, or administrative body, to the newly formed Assembly of First Nations. With the change in structure, First Nation government leaders were able to directly formulate and administer the policies of the Assembly of First Nations. In the 1980s and 1990s the AFN was actively involved with Aboriginal rights, including areas such as: he Meech Lake Accord of 1987, the Charolettown Accord of 1992, and the Free Trade deal with the United States.
