This week we are recognizing the importance of Treaties in Saskatchewan and each day we are walking you through the Treaty timeline: Before Treaty; At Treaty; After Treaty; and Today.

After Treaties were signed, the Spirit and Intent of them were not honoured and we saw the creation of the Indian Act, the Indian Residential School system, and other breaches.

Treaty Commissioner Mary Musqua-Culbertson speaks about what happened after the Treaties were signed in this video.
