Nation-Based Sovereign-Based Government

Local Nation Helpers are key in the governance process

November 26, 2019

Treaty 2 Territory – Local Nation Helpers (LNH) are the key in communicating with the members of the local Nation and FNT2T. The Local Nation Helpers keep the members informed of what is happening in FNT2T government and organizes information meetings for the members to attend.

The LNH also updates and inputs information on the local First Nation website. This helps keep the members up to date on the latest development in the Treaty 2 Territory and within each local Nation. Members from the local Nation are encouraged to participate in the information/engagement sessions that are in each First Nation. Constitutional and Law development is key to moving forward.

The Local Nation Helper assist the members in accessing and keeping the members informed around constitutional and law development.
