Partnership Between TRCM Treaty Knowledge Centre and the MFNERC

Yesterday, MFNERC Executive Director Charles Cochrane and Treaty Commissioner Loretta Ross celebrated the new partnership with the Treaty Relations Commission of Manitoba’s Treaty Knowledge Centre. Through this partnership, MFNERC and TRCM will work to implement Treaty education throughout the province. The Treaty Knowledge Centre is set to open in the summer of 2022 at The Forks. MFNERC looks forward to being a partner in this important work.

Historical ceremony towards reconciliation and reclamation.

MFNERC and MFNSS would like to acknowledge Sophia Smoke for her role in the historic ceremony today that took place with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and the Southern Chiefs Organization. The HBC building located in Downtown Winnipeg was gifted to SCO in the spirit of reconciliation and reclamation, and the building is set to be renovated into affordable housing for First Nations people, a child care centre, a museum, an art gallery, and restaurants. Sophia Smoke, a young member of the Dakota Plains Wahpeton First Nation, moved many in attendance to tears with her powerful speech and we look forward to hearing more from her in the future as a young leader.
