The Aboriginal Affairs Coalition of Saskatchewan is up and running.


The newly-formed group held its first annual general assembly over the weekend in Saskatoon.


It is considered to be the Saskatchewan arm of the Congress of Aboriginal Peoples.


Kim Beaudin was voted in as president, while Brendan Cross was elected as vice-president.


Beaudin says people from as far away as Cumberland House came to the event.


He says the group is trying to be as transparent as possible with its operations, and recently completed its constitution.


According to Beaudin, the coalition is open to any Aboriginal person who doesn’t feel represented in society.


He says the organization has a lot of work to do and must now attempt to get some funding.
