Chief and Council of Long Plain First Nation have had many discussions on the issue of drug trafficking and violence within the community. To promote, enhance, and sustain the health, safety, and quality of life for our people – we are striving to provide an environment of improved well-being. This is the core of what we want to accomplish as a sovereign First Nation community. The rise in use and selling of illegal/nonprescription drugs is not our cultural belief or way of life, addressing this issue is paramount in protecting our community. We are taking a strong stance that these actions will not be tolerated on-reserve. We will be providing a notice to all residences in community about next steps. If you’re suspected or caught trafficking illegal substances there will be consequences.

As a Tribal Government, we will stay committed to ensuring health and safety of our community by taking necessary measures to stop drug trafficking, drug use, and violence on the reserve.
