Students from across the province gathered in Langenburg on Sept. 19 to 21 for the Saskatchewan Student Leadership Conference 2018.

More than 800 students and volunteers were registered for the three days of keynotes, events and breakout sessions.

Office of the Treaty Commissioner’s director of speaker’s bureau, Amy Seeseequasis, facilitated a breakout session on Reconciliation: Fulfilling the Spirit and Intent of Treaty through Cultural Awareness and Positive Race Relations.

The session looked at Treaty history and applicable information (pre-colonial existence, contact & colonization, Treaty signing, Indian Act, Residential Schools, current realities, etc.) with focus on the Spirit and Intent of Treaty, and the roles and responsibilities of the participants as Treaty People.

Amy talked about how Reconciliation for all people begins when we recognize the importance of Treaties and our roles and responsibilities as Treaty people.
