Konrad Sioui (born in 1953) is the current Grand Chief (French: Grand Chef) of Wendake, a native reserve that is an enclave within what is now Quebec City, Canada. He succeeded Max Gros-Louis in 2008.

Sioui is a hereditary chief of the Bear Clan of the Huron-Wendat Nation.[1]

He represented the Assembly of First Nations in Geneva from 1985 to 1992 while being the official and national spokesperson on constitutional reform issues between 1984 and 1994. He was a candidate in the AFN's 1994 leadership convention, but lost to Ovide Mercredi.

R. v. Sioui

In R. v. Sioui, known as the Sioui Decision, Sioui won a unanimous decision at the Supreme Court of Canada in 1991. The ruling acknowledged that a 1760 document signed between British General James Murray and the Huron band, the Huron-British Treaty of 1760, is still valid as it was an international agreement entered into between sovereign nations.[2]
