First Nations leaders from across the province began meeting on Wednesday for the Federation of Saskatchewan Indian Nations fall assembly.

Over the course of two days, FSIN delegates will discuss a number of issues and resolutions in the areas of health and social development, education, justice, economic development and treaties.

The Department of Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development will also make a presentation on the first day of the assembly.

On Thursday, the FSIN will honour a number of people and organizations including University of Saskatchewan Chancellor Blaine Favel, the Saskatchewan RCMP’s former top officer Russ Mirasty and the Fond du Lac firefighters.

The two-day assembly takes place on the Whitecap Dakota First Nation, just outside of Saskatoon.
