Grand Chief Jerry Daniels

Southern Focused | Community Driven

Jerry Daniels is Grand Chief of the Southern Chiefs’ Organization (SCO), representing 34 Anishnaabe and Dakota communities in Southern Manitoba.  In January of 2020, he was acclaimed for a second term, the first time a Grand Chief has run unopposed in SCO’s history.

Grand Chief Daniels is a proud member of Long Plain First Nation, and a proud father to son Angelo Daniels.  He was raised by his grandparents, Isabel and Donald Daniels, along with his aunties, uncles, and community members.

Grand Chief Daniels graduated from the University of Manitoba with a Bachelor of Arts degree in economics and he is the owner of Innovative Educational Business. Under his leadership in 2019, SCO worked with Brandon University to research and document Indigenous contributions to the broader Manitoba economy, demonstrating an impact of $9.3 billion.  Collectively First Nations are one of the key drivers of Manitoba’s economy.

Grand Chief Daniels is focused on improving the quality of life for the Anishnaabe and Dakota Nations, through key initiatives including transforming the way southern First Nations experience health care through health transformation, and designing and building a community care model consistent with the evolution of the children welfare system as envisioned by southern First Nations.

Grand Chief Daniels believes strongly that the youth voice must be heard, and under his leadership SCO created a strong Youth Council that is engaging at the provincial, national and international level to address issues such as clean drinking water, access to culture and language resources, and climate change.

Grand Chief Daniels has served on boards and councils at the local, regional, and national levels. In 2012, Grand Chief Daniels became a key organizer of the Idle No More movement.
