What a tumultuous general assembly signals about the role and future of the AFN
The Assembly of First Nations wrapped up its annual general assembly in Vancouver this past week with national chief RoseAnne Archibald still at the helm, after First Nations leaders voted against continuing her suspension, amid an ongoing investigation into workplace bullying and harassment allegations, which Archibald has denied. In the wake of the controversy, we take stock of how the AFN arrived at this point, and how it may need to evolve going forward. David Common is joined by Indigenous studies scholar and Winnipeg Free Press columnist Niigaan Sinclair and Pam Palmater, a lawyer, professor and former candidate for AFN national chief.
