SASKATOON — Representatives of the Advisory Circle and the chair in Indigenous Spirituality and Reconciliation hosted the formal installation of a treaty plaque Nov. 30 at St. Thomas More College in Saskatoon.

The plaque consists of an enlarged replica of the original medal that was presented to participating First Nations at the time of the Treaty 6 signing in 1876, along with an explanatory plaque acknowledging Treaty 6 territory and proclaiming the importance of treaties to all Canadians.

The event involved a smudging ceremony and a Liturgy of the Word that included words of reflection and hope as the medal was unveiled along with the explanatory plaque.
