Statement: Chief Kimberly Jonathan
Hon. Lillian Eva Dyck: Honourable senators, I rise today to acknowledge the change in leadership in Saskatchewan in the Federation of Saskatchewan Indian Nations.

As I noted a couple of days ago, Chief Perry Bellegarde of the Federation of Saskatchewan Indian Nations has now been elected National Chief of the Assembly of First Nations. With that move, the First Vice-Chief of the Federation of Saskatchewan Indian Nations will now become the Chief of the Federation of Saskatchewan Indians, and that person is Chief Kimberly Jonathan. She will be the first ever female Chief of the Federation of Saskatchewan Indian Nations.
