Treaty 6 Chiefs, delegates, dignitaries, and politicians. Sharon Pasula
The Confederation of Treaty 6 flag on the community pole. Sharon Pasula
Treaty 6 Recognition Day on August 18 was very respectfully done again this year, in my opinion. There were lots of refreshments, information tables of various organizations. It was culturally appropriate and paid for with our tax dollars.
The first time I attended this event was three years ago and the Mayor said the same thing: “We will put up the flag permanently.” This year he said they need to put up the big flag poles. Currently flying are three flags on the “big flag poles” at City Hall.
How many years does it take to erect a big flag pole at Edmonton’s City Hall? We’re still waiting. I wonder if it will get done before the next civic election. Probably not. Why does this matter anyway? Because we are all treaty people!
