Planning underway for the 130th anniversary of the Woodland Cree negotiated adhesion to Treaty 6.

Treaty Commissioner of Saskatchewan, Mary Culbertson, says she is honoured to be part of the commemoration celebration and its planning.

On Feb. 11, 1889, Woodland Cree negotiated adhesion to Treaty 6. They negotiated this adhesion on the Ice of Montreal Lake.

“Askipago” only the land, they asked about the water, the fish the fur bearing animals and were told “Tapwe Askipago” only the land the Commissioners wanted access to.
