Graeme’s primary professional focus has been to increase the capacity of the people of Six Nations, while also improving the relationships they have with mainstream society. Once of the most remarkable lessons Graeme carries through his life, is how well our people can simultaneously look toward the future and learn from lessons of the past. From his experience working on and off reserve, in the private and public sectors at both the local and national levels, Graeme has developed a true grasp on continuous lifelong learning. He knows that education never stops and can come from several means of teachings whether they are formal or informal. He hopes to pass this onto his grandchildren and have them appreciate it as much as he does.
