Contemporary Life

Kainai Children Singing

Although Treaty 7 was signed over a century ago, there remain many complex issues around the signing and implementation of that significant document. While the Treaty terms have remained the same, the opinions and interpretations regarding the intent and relevance of the Treaty in modern times have altered, and differed, significantly.

In this section, we will explore not only the impact the Treaty has had on the descendants of those who adhered to it over a century ago, but also some of the unresolved issues that continue to surround the implementation of the Treaty itself. These issues will be complimented by a look at contemporary life in the Treaty 7 region. The intent of this section is to foster and sustain a dialogue that has already begun, and is moving towards creating a much more complete picture of this very sensitive part of our history, both as a province and as a nation.
