There are many important themes woven into the Making Treaty 7 story, and there’s certainly a lot to share, to talk about, and to learn from.

Education and Outreach Committee


Guided by knowledge keepers, we will support reconciliation and build bridges of understanding through: education, art, and celebration. Seek to interpret the true spirit and intent of Treaty 7, signed in Sept. 1877: and tell the story from all of the voices, particularly those of the five Nations of Treaty 7.

Education definition

Education is the life-long process of learning or the acquisition of knowledge, skills, values, beliefs, and habits. This includes Indigenous ways of knowing which value aspects of mind, body and spirit.

Strategic Activities

The Education and Outreach Advisory Committee will co-create, with the advice of Elders, activities, and materials that lead to informed intergenerational and intercultural discussions and relationships. How might we:

  • Utilize digital media (on-line)
  • Create print materials
  • Facilitate community discussions (with elders or actors)
  • Support live performances (such as the Matinees) with additional services and products
  • Explore research options
  • Identify other opportunities that link the performances and the arts to the Calls to Action of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission and the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples
  • Measure outcomes and impact of education and engagement activities
