Duncan Michano Jr.

Duncan Michano Jr. (Chief, Biigtigong Nishnaabeg; and Former Holder of Council's Language Portfolio)

Duncan joins the team as one of the moderators in our on-line forum. His ability to assimilate large amounts of information quickly and conceptualize abstract ideas makes him an ideal moderator. Duncan is naturally curious and welcomes opportunities to learn from others. He is able to walk in another’s moccasins and see things from that other person’s perspective. He is respectful of others’ views and perspectives, and knows that everyone’s opinion is important.

Duncan made it his priority to learn from our elders. Duncan carries Biigtigong’s history and the knowledge of our ancestors and elders. His connection to and understanding of our land, coupled with his love for Biigtigong, will bring meaningful dialogue that will contribute to the building of a strong, vibrant, and happy Nishnaabe community.
