146: Pathways to Treaty Relations.

Treaty 1 was signed 146 years ago at Lower Fort Garry. What does Treaty 1 mean to you? Treaty is an invitation into sharing land for the benefit of all living things. Come learn about the ways this sacred commitment can breathe new life into our relationships with one another and the world around us.

Date & Schedule: June 25, 2017

What to bring: $5*, a bagged lunch, a lawn chair and a friend!

*The annual payment of five dollars was a part of the treaty agreements in the 1870’s and to this day, every person is handed five bucks by the Canadian Government staff at “treaty time”. We are inviting each person who attends to bring a crisp $5 bill (if you are able) and to pay at the registration table. These funds will be used by the Sandy Saulteaux Spiritual Centre to cover some of the costs of hosting this gathering.
