Grand Council Treaty #3 Youth Select New Youth Executive Council

Kenora — Youth from across the Anishinaabe Nation in Treaty #3 gathered at the Wauzhushk Onigum First Nation Roundhouse on Pow Wow Island Sept 28 for the Traditional Selection Process of the Youth Executive Council.

The youth were supported by community Elders Ida Skead and Gilbert Smith, as well as the community drum. The youth spent the morning listening to the former youth council’s report on their four-year term and provide words of guidance to the youth.

The traditional selection process began with the sounding of the community drum and youth offered tobacco to nominees. The traditional selection process was completed late-afternoon and the new council was formed.

Grand Council Treaty #3 is pleased to announce the new Traditional Youth Council:

Liam George, Naongashiing
Winter Lipscombe, Wauzhushk Onigum
Kayla Morrison, Ojibways of Onigaming
Ernie Cobiness Jr., Buffalo Point
