Citizenship Legal review

In June 2017 Chief and Council sought the legal advice of Alisa Lombard to review our current citizenship code.  This was announced at the May 23, 2017 public council meeting. There is no doubt the intent at the time was to preserve our heritage, however it is has become obvious that the code now faces many constitutional and discriminatory challenges.

Over time we will be holding information sessions about how the code can be make stronger and how things such as blood quantum currently affect our community. These sessions may include working groups, committees or anyone that has an interest in how the code applies to the next seven generations.
