Muscowpetung Saulteaux Nation (“Muscowpetung”) elects its Chief and Council using rules set out in the Indian Act. Chief and Council are considering moving Muscowpetung away from the Indian Act, and toward a Custom Election Act. This move would help put Muscowpetung in control of its own governance and is consistent with Muscowpetung’s inherent right to self-determination.
Chief and Council are asking all community Members to provide feedback on these issues, and anything else Members believe is important for Muscowpetung’s elections. All Member feedback will be collected over the next month and considered when finalizing the draft of the Custom Election Act.
