Gilford elects Chief, Council

Gilford Village citizens elect a Chief and three new Band councillors

Gilford Village citizens elected their Chief and three new Band councillors to a three-year term on Friday, May 22. Robert Chamberlin was re-elected Chief Councillor, along with council members Tamara Alfred, Rick Johnson, and Robert Scow.

Chamberlin was first elected Chief Councillor of Kwikwasut’inuxw Haxwa’mis First Nation in 2005.  Previous councillors were Herb Chamberlin and Sandy Johnson. The number of councillors went up this year, because the band membership reached the 300-plus mark. Gilford Island, home to the First Nation of Kwikwasut’inuxw Haxwa’mis, is located North of Vancouver Island between Tribune Channel and Knight Inlet.

The Kwikwasut’inuxw Haxwa’mis First Nation is part of the larger Kwakwaka’wakw tribal grouping and they speak the Kwawala language.
