Supporters of Cathy Merrick hope the days of the ‘old boys’ club are over.
Bethany Maytwayashing is happy to finally see a woman in charge at the Assembly of Manitoba Chiefs (AMC).
She hopes Cathy Merrick – the organization’s first female grand chief – will lead a more inclusive First Nations organization than her predecessor Arlen Dumas.
“(Electing Merrick) is great and a step towards reconciliation with women and problem solving,” said Maytwayashing, who accused Dumas of messaging her inappropriately in 2019.
“I think that being a female – that the grand chief would be more sensitive. The ‘old boys’ club’ they protect each other.”
