Grand Council and Treaty Gathering has been rescheduled to August 28/29

Treaty 2 Territory –The Treaty 2 Grand Council and Treaty Gathering has been rescheduled to August 28-29, 2018 and will continue to be hosted by the Keeseekoowenin Ojibway First Nationat the Clear Lake IR61A reservelocated on the northwest shores of Clear Lake in Riding Mountains. 

The purpose of the Grand Council is to celebrate the 147th anniversary of the meeting of Chippewa Nation and representatives of Her Majesty the Queen of Great Britain and Ireland at Manitoba House at Lake Manitoba on August 21, 1871. The event is of great historical significance.

At the Grand Council gathering, meetings of the various Councils will take place, including the Lands and Waters Council, Elders Council, Women's Council, Youth Council, and a meeting of the Council of Chiefs. 
The Gathering is organized by Anishinaabe Agowidiiwinan, which is mandated to advance interests in culture, language and history. This year is of special significance because the Anishinaabe Agowidiiwinan through the collective decision of the Treaty 2 First Nations hasmoved forward toward uniting all the First Nations in the Treaty 2 Territory. 

Grand Chief Norman Bone affirmed the intention of uniting all the First Nations within the Treaty 2 Territory by stating, “The initiative is necessary because in addition to the nine First Nations who were at Manitoba House in 1871, since then there are another fifteen First Nations with reserves in Treaty 2 Territory. If we are going to defend and protect the lands and waters in our territory, we all of us have to be involved and active in asserting our Inherent Rights." Going further to say, "We have to be united to defend our Rights and interests, and ensure our future generations can enjoy the gifts of the natural world." 

All First Nations in the Treaty 2 Territory are invited to attend and come and talk about our future as we move forward together.

Grand Council & Treaty Gathering Postponement

Treaty 2 Territory - It is with the greatest respect to the family and community of Elder Doug Blackbird who has departed from this life and is journeying into the next that we acknowledge his life and the history he carried with him. Elder Blackbird was the last living descendent that experienced the forced relocation from the Riding Mountain area to the present location of the Keeseekoowenin Ojibway First Nation. Elder Blackbird was recognized as a hard-working man and highly respected by all who knew him. It is a great loss not only for the people of Keeseekoowenin, but for all of the First Nations in Treaty 2 territory.

It is the Anishinaabe way to stop all formal activity and give honour to the departed spirit who is journeying to meet the Creator. The Anishinaabe Agowidiiwinan - Treaty 2 will follow this protocol and is postponing the Grand Council gathering scheduled for August 19-21, 2018 at Keeseekoowenin 61A. No date has been confirmed yet as to when the gathering will be rescheduled and another date will be announced shortly. 

(Daily start time: 9:00am)
