Treaty Commissioner of Saskatchewan Mary Culbertson spoke at Thomson Community School in Regina on April 17, at a Treaty Fair that was dedicated to Noel Starblanket.
Mary talked to students, teachers and members of the public about the importance of the responsibility to learn about Treaties and to share the that knowledge because We are All Treaty People.
The Treaty Fair initiative included classroom displays with examples of how they learned about Treaties by connecting to the Saskatchewan Treaty Outcomes for their grade level. There were interactive stations with art, PowerPoint presentation, videos and a re?enactment of the annuity payment ceremony at Treaty Days. 
There was also a hands?on display on traditional uses of buffalo, how symbols honour Treaty long ago and today, language loss and language revitalization efforts, oral history and the residential school experience. This helped participants gain an understanding of historical and contemporary components of treaty and helped everyone connect to reconciliation through Treaty Education
