Band members of the Tataskweyak Cree Nation have barricaded their band office as part of a protest they’re holding against their chief and council.

Like many First Nations, the community faces housing shortages and over-crowding.

But protestors say the chief and council failed to address those problems and they want to know why.

Band member Alberteen Spence spoke with APTN National News about the situation.
