The former national chief of the Assembly of First Nations RoseAnne Archibald says she’ll make her first comments since being fired from the organization’s top job on July 3 according to an online statement posted by members of her team.

“Wahcheeyay, #TeamRoseAnne here letting you know a video statement from RoseAnne is coming Monday to address the great injustice against her, all women, and grassroots peoples,” the statement posted on Facebook said.

“RoseAnne told us that she will be entering ceremony this weekend to ground her sacred responsibilities. She also looks forward to going live to connect with you soon.

“In the meantime, call your Chief & Council to ask how they voted on the 28th and why. Did they consult you as grassroots people (who elected them)? See you Monday.”
