On Earth Day, the Treaty Commissioner of Saskatchewan, Mary Culbertson, and some of the OTC team visited Canoe Lake Cree Nation.

We met with the Canoe Lake Cree Nation Band Council, and the trip provided the opportunity to connect with some of the Treaty 10 Gathering Team about the event tentatively planned for August this year.

After a welcome from the teachers and students of Canoe Lake Miksiw School, including a drum group and honour song, the Treaty Commissioner spoke on the importance of Treaty education, as well as the history and the work of the OTC.

The OTC team was grateful to be part of a traditional dinner at lunch with the band council.

The Treaty Commissioner is pleased to be able to visit communities and have discussions about full Treaty implementation and the Treaty relationships.

"I absolutely loved the greeting and honour song. It feels so wonderful to be in the communities again in this time of COVID. Whenever we can all be safe I am looking forward to taking the opportunity to be in our communities."

This Apr. 22 visit followed all COVID-19 protocols including full mask wearing, and a stop at the security checkpoint at the community entrance for contact tracing.
