Sheshegwaning Kchi-Naaknigewin

Constitution Development Project

February 22, 2016
 
Aanii!
 
Sheshegwaning First Nation faces an exciting opportunity, however it’s probably not the kind you’re thinking of. This opportunity that has been in the works for the better part of 15 years, is one that comes with a real chance at prosperity and sustainability. This opportunity is about Nation Building.
 
On February 20th 2016, Chief and Council were very proud to approve what we feel is a consultation ready draft of Sheshegwaning KChi-Naaknigewin (Constitution). KChi-Naaknigewin was drafted by the people of Sheshegwaning, for the people of Sheshegwaning, and makes strong statements about our identity, values and our right as sovereign people to govern ourselves.
 
Why should you care about KChi-Naaknigewin? It’s all about “Who’s calling the shots?” Right now it’s some bureaucrat at INAC. We have to rely on and abide by another government’s institutions and rules to get things done. We have an opportunity to change that. Through law-making and stable institutions of government, we can create an environment where we are calling the shots; one where we manage our own destiny instead of having it dictated to us.
 
In closing, I hope that we can count on your participation in this consultation process, and to join us again on August 6th 2016 to ratify Sheshegwaning KChi-Naaknigewin. Miigwech.
 
Sincerely,
 
 
Chief Dean Roy,
Sheshegwaning First Nation
