HAIDA CITIZENS AS SOLE SHAREHOLDERS

THE ROLE OF THE COUNCIL OF THE HAIDA NATION


The Council of the Haida Nation (CHN) was formed in 1974 when a group of Haida leaders saw the need to organize and represent Haida citizens politically. Over the course of the past 40 years, the CHN has evolved into the governing body of the Haida nation, primarily focused on addressing Haida title and rights. The elected council obtains its mandate directly from Haida citizens at the Annual House of Assembly. The Constitution of the Haida Nation establishes the governing structure of CHN and every three years, Haida citizens elect the President, Vice-President, and regional representatives that comprise the Council. Regional representatives are elected for: Old Massett, Skidegate, Prince Rupert, and Vancouver. There are 14 representatives in total. CHN represents Haida citizens as the sole HaiCo shareholder. For more information on the CHN history, governance, and current news visit the CHN website.
 

The Haida Nation is the rightful heir to Haida Gwaii. Our culture is born of respect; and intimacy with the land and sea and the air around us.
Like the forests, the roots of our people are inter twined such that the greatest troubles cannot overcome us. We owe our existence to Haida Gwaii.
The living generation accepts the responsibility to insure that our heritage is passed on to following generations.
