Jaime Battiste

JaimeDSCF7132TNG2.jpgJaime Battiste is senior advisor to the Eskasoni Band Council.

At thirty years old, he is pretty young to be called a senior advisor. But that's just what he does for Eskasoni First Nation and he was hand picked for the position. 

After completing his law degree at Dalhousie University, he began teaching at Cape Breton University.

But it wasn't long before he was drawn back home to Eskasoni.
