June 6, 2024

Aamjiwnaang First Nation Chief Chris Plain will now also represent the Anishinabek Nation as deputy grand council chief following a traditional stand-up election held in Sudbury on Wednesday.

Plain was elected in a 21-16 stand-up vote involving fellow candidate Melvin Hardy.

“I look forward to being more involved and visiting all of your territories,” said Plain. “We’re all just one nation, we’re not regions, so I’ll be there to support you. When you have concerns or issues, and whether you have celebrations… I want to come and celebrate because it’s not all about the hard work, we need to celebrate the good work we do as well.”

Plain previously held the interim southwest regional deputy grand council chief position as there were four regional deputy grand council chiefs. However, there will now only be one deputy grand council chief moving forward.
