“Today I had the opportunity to travel to beautiful Bunibonibee Cree Nation to welcome Hanne Fugl Eskjaer, the Danish Ambassador to Canada, at the invitation of Chief Richard Hart. Acting AMC Grand Chief Eric Redhead also joined us in Bunibonibee.
It was nice to be able to support the community as they welcomed the Ambassador. She was able to learn more about the conditions in First Nations.
Ambassador Fugl Eskjaer learned about concerns with roads, housing, and the lack of reliable Internet in First Nations. She also learned about the traditional life of the Bunibonibee people, including the importance of hunting and fishing.
Ekosi to Chief Hart for inviting me to your community today. I extend my appreciation to the Ambassador for connecting with us and showing an interest in learning more about the lived realities of Northern First Nations citizens in Manitoba.”
~Grand Chief Garrison Settee
