We Are All Treaty People

Howard Walker

Howard Walker was born on the Fishing Lake First Nation. Howard spent time growing up on the James Smith First Nation. Howard is a gifted story teller, a renowned comedian and a motivational speaker. He has captured the attention of many audiences on the Pow wow trail with his skilled announcing and humour. He has accessed great knowledge through traditional teachers and is able to communicate in four languages - Cree, Saulteaux, Ojibway, and of course, English. He attended the Gordons and Prince Albert residential schools. His past work experiences include: working with under-privileged street children in Toronto; Drug and Alcohol Treatment programs both in Ontario and Saskatchewan; working with Treaty Rights for FSIN and the Office of the Treaty Commissioner. He has also worked with the penitentiaries in Ontario and Saskatchewan as an elder to inmates. This has indeed provided much pride, respect and honour to both the young and old across the First Nations and their celebrations.
