“…As long as the sun shines, the grass grows and rivers flow…”
Join us for We Are All Treaty People weekend as we commemorate Treaty No. 6, originally signed at Fort Carlton and Fort Pitt and later adhered to at Fort Edmonton on August 21st, 1877. Treaties are foundational to Canada’s relationship with Indigenous Peoples.
Come visit us at Fort Edmonton Park and learn about the diverse histories and cultures of First Nations who lived and still live in this territory known as Treaty 6. We welcome you to participate in activities and conversations with interpreters while learning about residential school systems, the reserve pass system, but most of all, to come celebrate the vast richness of Indigenous cultures and way of living and knowing. Let us tell you a story of the past and the present of Amiskwaciy-waskahikan (Edmonton Area).
