Welcome to Treaty 6 in Saskatchewan!
The First Nations people have lived and survived on these lands for thousands of years before the arrival of the newcomers. First Nations in Canada had a long relationship of treaty making with the British government since about 1670 until signing of the numbered Treaties in the early 1870’s.
As you have learned on this website, First Nations signed Treaty 6 in 1876 with the British Crown providing a new life for the newcomers and the transition of First Nations people to a life unfamiliar to them. Over time the landscape of Saskatchewan has changed but Treaty remains “as long as the sun shines, the grass grows, and the rivers flow…” We are all beneficiaries of Treaty.
In this game you will travel through Treaty 6 territory and become familiar with the First Nations reserves and Forts within the area. Since signing Treaty 6, the First Nations reserves are home to thousands of First Nations people, each First Nation is unique in culture, language, and traditions. Travelling through Treaty 6 you will learn about the treaty process and why treaties are important in understanding the evolution of Canada and how treaties are significant today and how they impact all of us forever...
