Ian Bushie is a proud member and former Chief of Hollow Water First Nation. Since 2019, he has been a dedicated representative for Keewatinook in the Manitoba Legislature, where he undertook significant roles as the NDP's Critic for Transportation and Infrastructure, as well as serving as the Deputy House Leader.
In 2021 and 2022, Ian took the initiative to introduce legislation to designate Orange Shirt Day as a statutory holiday in Manitoba, demonstrating his commitment to recognizing the importance of this day.
