Solomon succeeds former Grand Chief Lawrence Martin who was elected in 2014 following the death of Dr. Stan Louttit, a long-serving Grand Chief who passed away last following a lengthy illness. Rebecca Friday succeeds former Deputy Grand Chief Leo Friday.

“Jonathon and Rebecca have served Kashechewan with distinction during their many years on council and have led their community though many crisis situations including several evacuations due to seasonal flooding. I am confident that the Mushkegowuk Nation will be well-served by their leadership and I look forward to working closely with them,” said Grand Chief Fiddler.

The Mushkegowuk Council is one of NAN’s seven Tribal Councils and represents seven Cree communities in northeastern Ontario: Attawapiskat First Nation, Chapleau Cree First Nation, Fort Albany First Nation, Kashechewan First Nation, Missanabie Cree First Nation, Moose Cree First Nation, and Taykwa Tagamou Nation (New Post).
