MissionMontana First Nation

Our Mission

The Montana First Nation will increasingly exercise its inherent sovereignty and implement its Tribal government. Future endeavors are:

  • take over more and more of the control and administration of programs formerly run by federal and provincial government agencies including taking over the operation of electrical and other public utilities for the Tribe
  • make written laws over a number of tribal matters currently under provincial and federal legislation
  • amend the election system so that elections are held once every 3 years
  • encourage tribal members to become more involved in tribal decision-making
  • continue to increase the tribal land base by lobbying the federal and provincial governments to convert acquired off-reserve lands to reserve status
  • build a free-trade zone on the reserve
  • build a casino on tribal-owned lands
  • encourage the retention of Cree culture among the youth
  • prepare young people for owning and operating their own business
