When Lambton Shield editor J.D. Booth first met Chief Joanne Rogers of the Aamjiwnaang First Nation, it was at a Chamber of Commerce event—specifically the Annual General Meeting in February 2017 where the Chief had been asked to speak.
It took over a year for the follow up to occur (no fault of the Chief) but it was worth the wait.
In a conversation that took place in Council chambers, we spoke with Chief Rogers, about her background, her motivation for becoming the first female Chief, and some of her hopes for the people she serves.
