I want to give a shout out to Muskowekwan Grade 7 student Landon Moise, and Fishing Lake Elder Melva Desjarlais, for their excellence in representing the Treaty Education Alliance and their First Nations so beautifully during the recent special luncheon hosted by the Lieutenant Governor of Saskatchewan on October 20, 2018. This special luncheon was held in honour of Her Honour, Julie Payette, the Governor General of Canada’s first visit to Saskatchewan.
During the visit, Landon told the Governor General that he was happy to meet an astronaut, and that he knew she has a special relationship to First Nations peoples because of the Treaty. Elder Melva reminded the Governor General of the pain and suffering that was caused over many generations through the residential schools and that the time for healing is now.
TEA was honoured to be among five recipients specially chosen to meet the Governor General.

The Chiefs of the Treaty Education Alliance are pleased to report a successful first meeting with Federal Minister of Indigenous Services Jane Philpott at the historic Treaty 4 Governance Centre in Fort Qu’Appelle. We are confident our work together will result in a brighter future for our children and youth, and all of Canada.
