First Nations Woman Chairs Order of Nova Scotia Council

Viola Robinson, a First Nations woman who has championed Mi’kmaq people and the advancement of aboriginal and treaty rights in Nova Scotia and Canada, is the new chair of the Order of Nova Scotia Advisory Council.

Among other functions, the council chooses the recipient of the annual Order of Nova Scotia award for citizenship, the province’s most prestigious civilian award, “recognizing Nova Scotians for outstanding contributions of achievements,” the organization’s website says.

“I congratulate Ms. Robinson on becoming the new chair of the advisory council,” said Council Premier Darrell Dexter. “I know her dedication and leadership will be a strong addition to the advisory council and the Order of Nova Scotia program.”

From Truro, Robinson has helped develop and implement plans such as the Made-In-Nova Scotia Process, which helps coordinate Mi’kmaq social, legal and political issues between the federal and provicincial governments.

“Her dedication to her fellow Mi’kmaw has led to many positive changes within First Nations communities,” the council’s announcement said. Robinson herself received the Order of Nova Scotia in 2009.
