The Federation of Saskatchewan Indian Nations has released the list of candidates running in next month’s FSIN elections.


Incumbent chief Alphonse Bird is being challenged by vice-chiefs Lawrence Joseph and Delbert Wapass.


Meanwhile, another incumbent vice-chief, Morley Watson, is up against Poundmaker band member Eric Tootoosis and Larry Oakes of Nekaneet.


The race for the Office of Third Vice-Chief features two former vice-chiefs. Ahtahkakoop’s Larry Ahenakew and Pasqua’s Lindsay Cyr have put their hat in the ring, as has Glen Pratt of the Gordon First Nation.


There is a logjam of candidates running for the Office of Fourth Vice-Chief. They include Fond du lac’s Alan Adam, Lyle Daniels of Kawacatoose, George Morin of Peter Ballantyne, Ted Quewezance of Keeseekoose, Daryl Watson of Mistawasis and Big River’s Lyle Whitefish.
