Winnipeg broadcaster, musician and university strategist Wab Kinew is mulling a run for the national leadership of the Assembly of First Nations.
Kinew said Tuesday he's contemplating a run for the position vacated May 2 when B.C.'s Shawn Atleo resigned over Bill C-33, the proposed federal legislation governing First Nations education.
Kinew said he is considering his family and career obligations before he makes a final decision.
A former rapper and CBC reporter, Kinew is the University of Winnipeg's director of indigenous inclusion and a correspondent for Al-Jazeera. He was raised in Onegaming First Nation, located southeast of Kenora.
Kinew said he will make a decision by the end of May, when the AFN determines when an election will take place.
