National Chief Shawn A-in-chut Atleo

The Manitoba Chambers of Commerce and Aboriginal Chamber of Commerce were proud to jointly host an event featuring National Chief Shawn A-in-chut Atleo. 

National Chief Shawn A-in-chut Atleo is a Hereditary Chief from the Ahousaht First Nation. In July 2009, A-in-chut was elected to a three-year mandate as National Chief to the Assembly of First Nations. 

It was the first time the two chambers came together to host an event and it seemed as if the 350-plus leaders from the business community, aboriginal community and public sector could tell it was a special occasion. 

National Chief Shawn A-in-chut Atleo did not fail the moment, giving a passionate and engaging speech that interwove his personal history, the history of the aboriginal peoples and a vision for the future. 

Videos of the speech are now available, including: 

  • Preliminary Remarks
  • Economic Development and Education Part 1
  • Economic Development and Education Part 2
  • Energy and Closing Remarks 

Bonus coverage features greetings from Andrew Clarke, Chair of the Aboriginal Chamber of Commerce.
