The Federation of Saskatchewan Indian Nations wrapped up last week amid increasingly bitter divisions over the organization’s to elected chief.
Some chiefs are openly pushing to depose federation Chief Guy Lonechild after it emerged he had been charged with drunk driving several weeks before he was elected to the post.
