Chief Ron Evans has been in various leadership positions continuously since 1980 when he was elected the youngest Councillor in the history of Norway House. His range of experience includes both public and private sector First Nation organizations in Norway House as well as Manitoba and Canada.
Chief Evans is credited with numerous major accomplishments, both for the community of Norway House Cree Nation, as well as for leadership in First Nation issues provincially and nationally.
To this day, the Crown frequently requests Chief Evans’ advice and counsel. Ministers in both provincial government and federal government often request his involvement in addressing evolving, national First Nation issues in areas such as security, health, education, justice, economic development, mining, fisheries, First Nation governance and current social issues, such as the solution to the large number of murdered and missing aboriginal women.
Nationally, Chief Evans was involved in electoral reform, an issue that directly affects the capacity of leadership in all First Nation communities.
