Save the date for the We Are All Treaty People Celebration! This year's event will take place the afternoon of Sunday, September 19 online. 

The afternoon event will feature speakers and music commemorating the 150th anniversary of Treaties 1 and 2. It’s an opportunity for Settlers and Newcomers to join together with Indigenous people in celebrating the kinship relationship created by the signing of the Treaties, to share the richness of these cultures through the arts and to honour the treaty commitment to share this land together in a good way.

You'll hear from the following guests:
Jim Compton, Treaty Relations Commission of Manitoba (emcee)
Steve Bell
Don Amero
Shanley Spence
Brandi Vezina
Island Breeze Manitoba
