Cindy Woodhouse Biography
The Assembly of First Nations’ strength comes from the voices of our Chiefs as they directly represent our people. To create a better tomorrow for our children, our First Nations need to support each other now more than ever.
We will build on past accomplishments as well as learn from past errors, but we need to keep pushing forward in a good way.
We must relentlessly fight for all First Nations’ Treaty rights, inherent rights, title, and jurisdiction.
