Three of five executive positions are up for election this month in the Federation of Sovereign Indigenous Nations (FSIN). Two competing sections in the FSIN Election Act caused a dispute over who would serve as interim grand chief. The dispute led to the police being called to the FSIN headquarters. Guy Lonechild, who served as FSIN chief from 2009 to 2011, believes that FSIN has lost its original focus on treaty rights and is now focused on money and control.
