Former FSIN Chief recognized by university
Blaine Favel was awarded an Honorary Doctor of Laws from the College of Education at the University of Saskatchewan at the Spring Convocation Ceremony. “We are proud of our former leader who continues to work for the betterment of First Nations people,” said interim Federation of Saskatchewan Indian Nations Chief Vice Chief Morley Watson in a news release. “Anytime one of our First Nation citizens receives a distinction of this kind, it is a celebration for all of our people.” Favel graduated with a law degree from Queens University and an MBA from Harvard Business School. He also holds a Bachelor of Education from the University of Saskatchewan from the same college that is awarding him an honorary doctorate. Favel attended the Program of Legal Studies for Native People in 1987. Favel currently serves as the chief executive officer of One Earth Oil and Gas Inc.

Prior to his success in industry, Favel served as Chief of the FSIN where he pioneered two national firsts: the establishment of the First Nations Bank of Canada and the Saskatchewan Indian Gaming Authority.
