The Treaty Commissioner of Saskatchewan, Mary Culbertson, received the Queen Elizabeth II Platinum Jubilee Medal in a small ceremony at the Office of the Treaty Commissioner on Dec. 7, 2022.

“It is very special for me to be able to do this today,” said Lieutenant Governor of Saskatchewan, Russell Mirasty during the medal presentation.

“Thank you for so much for what you have done, what you continue to do, and what you have committed to doing in the future.”

Mirasty spoke about the importance of Indigenous people stepping into public spaces to “claim our right to be there and be able to express ourselves, our world view and really educate people about who we are, why we are here and ultimately we belong.”

“Work like what you have done enforces that and will continue to into the future.”

Friends and family in attendance, as well as OTC staff, spoke about the impact the Commissioner has had in their lives and on their work.

The Queen Elizabeth II Platinum Jubilee Medal (QPJM) recognizes outstanding Saskatchewanians of all ages and from all walks of life, who have built and continue to build a strong, vibrant society and province through their service, contributions, and achievements.
