Calvin Waquan, MCFN
Calvin Waquan is a proud member of the Mikisew Cree people. Walking in two worlds, Calvin has braided western and traditional teachings to benefit the community of Fort Chipewyan, Alberta, and the Athabasca region. He started as a Community Liaison/substitute teacher at Athabasca Delta Community School in Fort Chip, which lead him to operating a local store and to now an elected Councillor of the Mikisew Cree First Nation. His role has led him to venture on many legacy projects with being Chair of Mikisew Housing, a Director of Mikisew Group of Companies, and Director for 3 Nations Energy. Calvin hopes to work towards energy/food sovereignty as a community and to live in equilibrium with economics and environment moving into a climate-friendly economy.
