In 1997, Chief Hudson graduated from the University of Manitoba with a Bachelor of Science degree in Industrial Engineering. Educated and empowered, Chief Hudson’s vision is to develop economic self-sufficiency and develop the sustainable partnerships opportunities that exist beyond the reservation system that pay due recognition to Treaty Rights.  In 2009, Chief Hudson and the Peguis Council made history when they accepted a settlement from the Federal Government of Canada for $126 million dollars for the 1907 illegal surrender of their traditional land, St. Peter`s reserve.  Chief Glenn Hudson also ensured the development of a comprehensive community plan in 2011 and lead negotiations on the increase in education funding for Manitoba First Nations for the Assembly of Manitoba Chiefs.
