Assembly Of First Nations Chief Shawn Atleo Shows Keen Political Skill By Making Saskatchewan His First Visit

With only a 58% mandate in what normally requires 60% of the vote, newly elected AFN Grand Chief, Shawn Atleo, has demonstrated keen political skill by making the home territory of his main competitor the scene of his first official visit. Atleo attended the Pow Wow at Saskatchewan's Carry the Kettle First Nation last weekend.

Atleo is a member of the Ahousaht Nation in British Columbia and has a Masters Degree in Education. In the photo above, he is pictured in a cedar hat and cape which is traditionally worn by his people in the Pacific Northwest rain forest.
