Ohkinniinaa and Ninaaks meeting with Louis Bull Chief and Council

By Kelsey Solway

On Feb. 8, 2024 Siksika Nation Ohkinniinaa and Ninaaks met with Louis Bull Chief and Council at Sunpark, Siksika’s Calgary office, to discuss matters of policing and public safety on their respective Nations. While both groups have experienced challenges related to discrimination and miscommunication with external public safety providers, it was their mutual strengths that highlighted the conversation.

To summarize the group’s shared sentiments: when we look to the past we see that discrimination throughout history is powerful, and we can’t let that history repeat itself. Together, we are strong.
