Chief Bobby Cameron’s Message to Stop the Spread of Covid-19.
For everything we do as leaders, parents, and grandparents we strive to give the best quality of life for our children and grandchildren to give them the best opportunities to be successful in life.
Priorities have always been inherent and treaty-based jurisdiction for each Chief and Council. Every sector of all levels of government fall under the umbrella of the inherent and treaty rights, including education, child welfare, housing, health, economic development, and a right to livelihood.
We are the strongest Indigenous organization in Canada and we represent 74 First Nations in Saskatchewan. It is the self-determination of the First Nations to maintain governance, and we will advance each the progress and development of each Nation. Communication is so crucial because FSIN is mandated through strong and clear directives.

2021 COVID-19 Information package
The Federation of Sovereign Indigenous Nations (FSIN) is implementing an effective, inclusive, comprehensive communications strategy that is incorporating messaging to 74 First Nations within their governance structure. The communications strategy is focusing on the COVID19 vaccination messaging, variants and safety. The communications plan is integrating a collaborated approach between Tribal Councils, First Nations and leadership and staff of FSIN. The goals and vision of this communications work is to create external communications on COVID19 to ensure First Nations across Saskatchewan are informed about vaccines, variants and up to date on the latest health and safety measures.
Chiefs and Councils
As we work through the COVID-19 response, we want to take a moment and thank First Nations leadership and organizations for the care and dedication you are focusing on your communities. We know, however, that the risk of infection is not the only thing concerning your community and members. We appreciate that you have been flagging your concerns and emerging issues for our attention.
