The three Treaty 6 Nations and Tsuut’ina Nation from Treaty 7 territory, came together “because a lot of the work that’s going
on (with the federal government) there hasn’t been enough consultation.
That’s what we want,” said —Ermineskin Cree Nation Chief, Craig Mackinaw.

Mackinaw spent the last two days in Gatineau, Que., participating in a national policy forum hosted by the AFN.

“A lot of the chiefs want to either reject the implementation or look at a different process based on us leading it,” he said.

On Treaty 6 anniversary, Indigenous leaders say there’s a long way to go

newssssssss






Ermineskin Cree Nation Chief Craig Makinaw said of the many Treaty 6 breaches, the NRTA is the most significant, as it has left Indigenous
communities without a fair share of the resources and the economic benefits they have brought to federal and provincial governments.

He said some progress has been made in recent years to move closer to the treaty’s original intent,
but progress is often stalled by slow-moving court and justice systems.

“It’s going to be a long, long process,” Makinaw said.

The resolution calls for a fiscal relationship to be established directly with the Treasury Board
and the Department of Finance, noting that Treasury Board allocations “should fulfill
the legal obligations of the treaties, but do not.”
“The Treasury Board is kind of the key player in all of this,” said Mackinaw. 
“If we work with the Governor General and the Treasury Board we could have
that one-on-one relationship like when treaty first was signed.”
