Statement on LLN Rightful Government
The Lubicon Lake Nation is, has been and will always be governed in accordance with the customs, laws, and traditions governing our Nation.  In accordance with this, the Nation elected Chief Bernard Ominayak unanimously as Chief in June of 2009.  This leadership has been supported throughout the community and also in writing to the Government of Canada on July 2012. There is no "leadership" issue.

 

Welcome to the website for the Lubicon Lake Nation

We are the Lubicon Lake Nation: a sovereign and self-determining peoples. The Lubicon Lake Nation is a distinct Indigenous Nation with a well-defined traditional Territory in what is now known as north-central Alberta, Canada (see Map). We are Cree peoples, Neheyiwak, and were and have been hunting, fishing and trapping on our Traditional Territory long before the creation of Canada. We continue to occupy and protect our Traditional Territory today. We have never surrendered or ceded our land to a foreign government. Our Nation maintains jurisdiction over, authority for, and autonomy of our Traditional Territory, Nation and peoples.
