Sagkeeng First Nation voted to reject a $200-million settlement over damage related to dams on the Winnipeg River this weekend.
Manitoba Hydro included the compensation as part of larger deal that would have transferred ownership of 190 acres rich in archeological history to the First Nation.
Sagkeeng, 145 kilometres northeast of Winnipeg, holds traditional lands claims to territory in the Winnipeg River watershed.
The deal updated an earlier accord with Manitoba Hydro that had expired in 2006. The rejected deal would have extended and expanded on the earlier accord, and expired in 2046.
The Sagkeeng First Nation is expected to make a public statement today.
