Treaty 2 Territory – Keeseekoowenin Ojibway First Nation leaders and members have been meeting the past two days regarding the setup of their governance committee and moving forward with their own ‘First Law’ (constitution).

Chief Norman Bone presented the concept the past two days of planning with a solid governance plan through a written First Law (Constitution) and membership code. Keeseekoowenin will be reviewing the governance section in their Comprehensive Community Plan (CCP) completed back in 2013.
