Anishnawbek Grand Chief critical of Rainbow Board in wake of brawl
Anishnawbek Grand Chief Glen Hare sees a recent brawl at Manitoulin Secondary School as a sign of problems within the Rainbow District School Board.
Hare attended a rally in M’Chigeeng First Nation Thursday morning to talk to people about improving racial relations at the school.
He says the communities have to come together once again to grow their relationships..
He also has a warning, not a threat to the Board stating First Nations now control their own education, so they can choose to have them educated in First Nation schools in First Nation communities.
Hare was reacting to a brawl at the school where several students from M’Chigeeng are the sole ones facing charges in the altercation that took place last Friday afternoon.
The Rainbow Board has yet to make a statement in the wake of the incident.
Police are continuing the investigation.
