Women from northern Ontario First Nation plan to 'dehorn' their chief

 


A group of elected clan grandmothers intend to remove the only chief a small northern Ontario First Nation has ever known using a traditional practice called a 'seven woman dehorning'.

Edward Machimity has been chief of the Ojibway Nation of Saugeen First Nation, about 400 kilometres northwest of Thunder Bay, Ont., since the reserve was created in 1986.

For decades, there has been tension between the approximately 75 community members who live on the reserve and the 150 or so who do not.
