The Office of the Treaty Commissioner works to see an increase in the number of educators comfortable with teaching Treaties in the classroom through a series of workshops.

Teaching Treaties in the Classroom ran in Saskatoon July 30 to Aug. 2 with an enthusiastic group from Saskatchewan, Alberta, Manitoba, India and Columbia. At the end of the four days, 22 new treaty catalyst teachers left excited to share their knowledge.

Along with Elder teachings, instructors ran simulations and facilitated discussions on Treaties with the participants.

It was Elder Gladys’s birthday on Tuesday, and Treaty Commissioner Mary Culbertson came to share in the celebration.

The workshop is sponsored by Saskatchewan Teachers Federation and the Office of the Treaty Commissioner.
