The Office of the Treaty Commissioner renewed their strategic alliance with the Great Plains College at an event on the Warman campus last week.

The ceremony began with a prayer by OTC Speakers Bureau member and Cultural Advisor to Great Plains College, Lyndon Linklater. He also shared information on the importance of the partnership and his experiences over the years working on the college campuses.

Treaty Commissioner of Saskatchewan Mary Culbertson shared information about OTC is and the purpose and importance of these partnerships, as well as the importance of regional colleges to our province. Amy Seesequasis provided history on the alliance and steps moving forward. College President David Keast spoke of the campuses and their importance to the communities, the profound changes to the campus over the years due to the partnership, and how this new information sharing contributes to the bigger picture which is healthy and vibrant communities that are inclusive.

There were about 25 students and 15 staff attended the event to see the signing of the three-year renewal document.

The Great Plains College has been working with the OTC since 2012, and in 2017 the first two-year alliance was signed to see Treaty History, Indigenous knowledge systems and Reconciliation awareness integrated into the campuses across Saskatchewan.
