Mistawasis First Nation votes “YES” to their Land Code! On January 16, 2017, over 90% of Mistawasis voters cast their ballot in favour of adopting their community Land Code. Not only is this a tremendous accomplishment for Mistawasis First Nation, but it is equally exciting for the Saskatoon Tribal Council whose member communities are now all Operational under the Framework Agreement. With their inherent right to govern their lands and resources now appropriately back in the hands of the community, Mistawasis’ future holds limitless opportunity. Congratulations Mistawasis!
