Russ Diabo, an Ontario-based Indigenous policy analyst and member of the Mohawk nation at Kahnawà:ke, is joining the Assembly of First Nations (AFN) in a special advisory role to National Chief RoseAnne Archibald.
Diabo will advise the national chief on AFN restructuring, self-government agreements and Bill C-15, the bill that seeks to align Canadian law with the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, or UNDRIP for short.
When Diabo ran for national chief in 2018, he ran on a campaign to restructure the AFN, an assembly of all First Nations across Canada similar to the United Nations. The AFN is also steered by an executive committee composed of the national chief and regional chiefs from each province and territory.
