The Quebec Native Women’s Association has a new president.
Michele Audette of Wendake, Que., was elected Sunday.
Audette is a former president of the organization and the outgoing vice-president.
She has been involved in many campaigns promoting the rights of Aboriginal women in Quebec.
Most recently she was involved with the Marche Amun which saw a group of women march from Wendake to Ottawa in support of the McIvor decision.
Mohawk activist Ellen Gabriel stepped down after serving three consecutive terms as president of the organization.
