President: Doane Crow Shoe
Doane was first elected to the Piikani Nation Council in January 2007, and is continuing in his third term as Councillor. Doane works with the Council towards a goal of advancing economic projects and developing new economic opportunities for the Piikani Nation. Doane has served as Chairperson of the Finance Committee for the last two terms of Council. As a member of the Council and one of several portfolio holders for economic development, Doane finalized negotiations and consummated business dealings with ATCO Hydro and AltaLink. The work of Doane and the team that shared his economic vision, resulted in the Piikani Nation now having a 25% net revenue sharing of all profits earned by the ATCO Hydro station located on the Oldman River in southern Alberta. Doane’s work with AltaLink has been instrumental in advancing the Piikani-AltaLink Option Agreement, and by the end of 2014 the agreement will be consummated and the Nation will own 51% of the equity involved in the transmission assets that comprise the portion of the 240 kV line located on Piikani Nation lands. Doane uses his employment experience and his Business Management degree to best serve the needs of the Piikani Nation as a Councillor and as the PRDL Board Director.
