Celebrations are underway at Montreal Lake Cree Nation to celebrate their adhesion to Treaty Six, which took place 135 years ago. The Treaty Six adhesion was signed under Chief William Charles in Molanosa, which is on the northeastern shores of Montreal Lake.
Today at the Senator Allen Bird Memorial School it’s a normal school day enhanced with guest speakers and re-enactments of some discussions that took place over 100 years ago.
Treaty Six was signed 13 years prior in Fort Carlton/Fort Pitt and people from MLCN grew curious about Treaty Six as it was promoted by many people that signed at that time.
“James Roberts had a church up in the La Ronge area and Little Hills had a church there and promoted that they wanted to be signers of that treaty that was signed 13 years prior,” said Prince Albert Grand Council Senator, Nolan Henderson.
