FSIN, SSBA, SICC, Treaty commissioner sign MoU for treaty education in SK

February 7, 2018

The Federation of Sovereign Indigenous Nations, the Saskatchewan Indigenous Cultural Centre, the Office of the Treaty Commissioner, and the Saskatchewan School Boards Association have signed a memorandum of understanding around treaty education in Saskatchewan schools. “Our children will grow up understanding their Inherent and Treaty rights,” said FSIN Chief Bobby Cameron. “They will learn that Treaties are a sacred covenant and are international law. Together, we can end discrimination in our education systems.” The agreement aims to address systemic discrimination in the spirit and intent of Treaty partnerships and supports those partnerships that advance Treaty awareness and education. “Our ongoing partnerships are very important in addressing shared responsibilities and interests in Saskatchewan’s education systems,” said SSBA President Shawn Davidson. “Joining together to sign this MOU is about our commitment to work together for the benefit of all Saskatchewan students.” CBC | SSBA
