Hundreds of people, including residents and leaders from the City of Saskatoon and Mistawasis Nehiyawak, filled the bridge for the ceremony, which started with a grand entry.

“I’m humbled that our young people are here with us…These youth are our future,” said Daryl Watson Chief of Mistawasis Nehiyawak, during the ceremony.

“Chief Mistawasis was a visionary. He is smiling down on us today,” said Mark Arcand, Saskatoon Tribal Council chief.
