This gathering introduces participants to the diverse Aboriginal peoples of Saskatchewan and Canada.
Indigenous Voices event with Robert Innes
Participants will learn about relationships between Indigenous peoples and the land, and how these relationships factor into treaty agreements, land claims and rights with First Nations, Metis, and Inuit peoples in Canada. An opportunity to learn about Metis scrip, Inuit land agreements and nation-to-nation treaty relationships is vital in understanding how to honour and respect the agreements. In this gathering, these land agreements are explored within the context of the foundations of the rights of Indigenous peoples, internationally, and the implications for the Indigenous peoples of Canada.
