Peguis First Nation – The community of Peguis First Nation mourns the loss of Louis Stevenson who served as Chief for 26 years from 1981 – 2007. He passed away at 64 years old following an illness. As a leader, Louis Stevenson was well known for fighting for First Nations treaty rights and raising awareness of our struggles.
Louis was a strong advocate for human rights and helped raise international awareness for First Nations issues by bringing South African diplomats to view the conditions of the Peguis community.
Peguis First Nation Chief and Council express their deepest condolences to family, friends and all community members.
