Fort William First Nation in the Media

Chief Georjann MorriseauFort William First Nation
A community is defined by more than its geography. A community is people living together, taking care of each other, having time for each other. I believe that we're stronger together than we are on our own, that this community succeeds when everyone gets a fair shot, when everyone does their fair share, when everyone plays by the same rules. We need to be focused on building a community that lasts— a community that lifts up all our members. Communities that work, take work. All the things that make us love where we live. Things we have and hold in common: our culture, employment, adequate housing, education, family, economic development, and most of all our Elders and youth. A system that addresses all aspects of our well-being. A leader’s job is to look into the future and see the community, not as it is, but as it should be.
CEO Michael HardyFort William First Nation
The first half of 2014 has been a busy and exciting time at Fort William First Nation. During Council and staff meetings and in discussions with individual members, we’re constantly emphasizing that we need to work together to ensure a bright future. It is our sacred obligation to ensure a safe, healthy and prosperous home for our children, Elders, families and individuals. We’re committed towards reinforcing our vision to ensure that we move in the right direction. We’re prepared to face new challenges as a dynamic, unified force. Change is not easy. I’d like to thank our respected Elders whose wisdom provides us with guidance and strength. The support of our Elders is important in affecting positive change. It’s important to acknowledge the vision, commitment and capable leadership of the Chief and Council.
