The Southern Chiefs’ Organization, representing 33 southern First Nation communities in Manitoba, was established in March 1999.
The Southern Chiefs’ Organization is established:
You are all doing good work here. The young people are at the centre and we are all connected. Our sacred responsibility is to honour one another. The time will come when we won’t have to apprehend children. I believe that time is coming. My job is to support your work and good communication is the key in our work. I encourage you in the work you are doing. We need to keep our children in their homes and we need to support our families and communities. It is important to listen to one another.
The role of the Southern Chiefs’ Organization in relation to the Southern Network is to appoint the board of directors of the Southern Network.
