MKO demands ban on Moose hunting for Non-Indigenous Featured

Published on Wednesday, 21 September 2022 08:39

As part of Manitoba Keewatinowi Okimakanak (MKO)’s Annual General Assembly held at the end of August, a resolution was approved to put forward a call to the Province to ensure the First Nation right of top priority to hunt moose and demand to cancel licensed non-Indigenous moose hunting in the MKO region.

This has been the third request by MKO to cancel non-Indigenous moose hunting licenses in GHA’s and areas affected by Moose Conservation Closure Regulation 122/2011. 

The letters sent to the province were dated back to December 3 and 7, 2021, and May 30, 2022, and have not received a reply or response from the Province to MKO Grand Chief Garrison Settee or Sapotaweyak Cree Nation (SCN) Chief Nelson Genaille.

MKO Grand Chief Settee sent another letter last week to Premier Stefanson and the Ministers for Justice, Natural Resources and Northern Development, and Indigenous Reconciliation and Northern Relations.
