Southern Chiefs of Manitoba

Southern Chiefs’ Organization represents 34 Anishinaabe and Dakota First Nation communities and more than 80,000 citizens in what is now called southern Manitoba. SCO is an independent political organization that, by following the direction of the 34 Chiefs, protects, preserves, promotes, and enhances First Nations peoples’ inherent rights, languages, customs, and traditions through the application and implementation of the spirit and intent of the Treaty-making process.
