The Federation of Saskatchewan Indian Nations’ Health Summit got into full swing in Saskatoon last night.


FSIN Vice Chief Morley Watson says a number of key topics will be discussed during the 3-day conference, including addictions and Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder.


A wide variety of Aboriginal leaders and health officials are in Saskatoon to weigh in on these problems and work on what’s being called the “Saskatchewan First Nations Plan.”


The plan will identify, in detail, the major issues that plague First Nations’ communities in Saskatchewan.


The discussions will also include deciding on a way to unveil the plan to the government and attracting more money and resources to tackle the issues identified.
