The Office of the Treaty Commissioner was so excited to support Reconciliation Nipawin in hosting a two-day gathering of Indigenous and non-Indigenous community members, and residential school survivors.

The event, Fulfilling the Promises: Treaty right to Education for Residential School Survivors, was held Aug. 18 and 19, and gave space for survivors to tell their stories.

The OTC team were joined by His Honour, the Lieutenant Governor of Saskatchewan, Russ Mirasty, Treaty Commissioner, Mary Culbertson, the RCMP, President of the Law Society of Saskatchewan, Falouke Lasoban, and other dignitaries from Treaty 5.

The OTC encourages people to listen, learn from, and share the stories of residential school survivors. It’s important that today Canadians understand what was done to assimilate Indigenous people into Canadian culture.

The event ended with, “Truth and Reconciliation through Treaty Implementation: A Journey To Wahkotowin.”
