Yellow Quill First Nation Chief and Council



Chief John Machiskinic

John has been known for many years as ‘Bull’. There is much speculation as to how he got the name Bull but, no one wants to say for sure. Bull played fastball for many years as a pitcher on the Nut Lake Royals team. He also was the goalie for the Yellow Quill hockey teams. These days he spends his time helping others as a traditional man. He is humble, spiritual and knowledgeable. Prior to being Chief, he was a Councilor for 9 years (three terms) and could be consistently found at the Band Office.
