In the early 1980’s former Chief Ether Deleary (late) brought the idea of a Constitution to our leadership. Early drafts were developed and over time our understanding and preparedness grew. What Chief Deleary started many great leaders afterwards continued and kept this dream alive. Here we are 30 plus years later, and many great minds from past committee tables, and many consultations with elders, knowledge keepers and members, we are ready. The 2017-2019 Chief and Council moved to finalize the Constitution work to strengthen and legitimize our jurisdiction over our territories, laws, citizens and economy.
