Tony is a leader in many ways, today he is Chief of Alexis First Nation. He is also spiritual leader and a fastball coach. I admire Tony for being a role model for young people. He made big changes in his personal life by following cultural ways and attending the Native Cursillo as well as attending an alcohol and drug rehabilitation program. As the Chief where there are overwhelming needs with few resources, Tony inspires his people and instills hope with prayer.
