FORT WILLIAM FIRST NATION – Members of the Hornepayne First Nation are holding a vigil outside of the Nishnawbe-Aski Nation offices on Fort William First Nation. The Hornepayne delegation are seeking NAN to recognize the election results on the First Nation.

Starting at 9:30AM on Wednesday morning, newly elected Chief Ron Kocsis and community Elders have sought a meeting with the NAN Elder’s Council.

The issue, Chief Kocsis says is key as NAN’s actions have resulted in funding for the First Nation community to be cut off.

Sources tell NetNewsLedger that previous to the election on Hornepayne First Nation last summer it had been ten years since an election had been held. Community members went forward with calling an election.
