Chief & Council

From the Office of Chief McNabb

tânisi niwahkômâkanak kitâtamiskâtinâwâw kâkiyaw (Hello my fellow relations & friends, I greet all respectfully with a handshake.)

Since the commencement of the newly elected position as okimâw or Chief it has been very busy and gives me much gratitude knowing that I and the Council work together for the betterment of all our people. It has been a learning curve for some of the newly elected leaders. The audit for the 2015-2016 fiscal year has been completed and sent into Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada for their perusal and approval. We are planning to present this audit to membership at the first opportunity possible.

As an educator, I would formally like to congratulate all students that have graduated receiving their high school diplomas. This opens the opportunity for these students to pursue technical college, university or a skilled trade. Secondly, I would like to congratulate all those that received diplomas, certificates and university degrees. We are very proud of all your accomplishments. I have had the opportunity and was highly honored to be invited and witness some of our member’s graduations and convocations.

Our annual pow wow as a success and was held on June 30, July 01 and 02, 2016. Next year we will hold our annual celebration in collaboration with Touchwood Agency Tribal Council, and has been scheduled for July 01, 02 and 03, 2017. I would like to invite all our membership to attend this celebration.

As the Chief for our nation we are working toward a better community for all of our members. Please feel free to come stop in and say hello, because my door is always open to our members.
