Garrison Settee is the new grand chief of MKO.


The former Pimicikamak chief was elected to the top MKO job yesterday over Ted Bland, with Settee receiving 53 of the 89 possible votes.


Settee says that he ran on a platform of transformational change, and that he didn’t run for the title, but for the north.


He added that his ultimate goal is to make northern Manitoba a better place for First Nations families, and that that will mean Canada has to pay more attention to treaties, issues and concerns.


The vote took place during the MKO general assembly, which wraps up today on the Opaskwayak Cree Nation.


Settee and Bland were the only two to put their names forward after now former Grand Chief Sheila North decided to step down to run for AFN national cheif, a race that she ultimately lost.
