Due to unfortunate circumstances, the City of Humboldt has been notified that the meeting with Treaty Commissioner Mary Culbertson today has been cancelled.
Humboldt and area residents have an opportunity to enrich their understanding of Indigenous viewpoints and the importance of Treaty with an upcoming event. Carlton Trail Regional College, Humboldt and District Chamber of Commerce and the City of Humboldt are pleased to jointly present an opportunity to learn more about Truth and Reconciliation from Treaty Commissioner of Saskatchewan, Mary Culbertson.
The Treaty Commissioner is of Nahkawe and Irish/Scottish English descent and is a member of the Keeseekoose First Nation. She was the first member of their community to earn a Juris Doctor from U of S Law and practice law in Saskatchewan. In January 2018, Mary Culbertson became the first female Treaty Commissioner for Saskatchewan.
“This is a wonderful opportunity for all of our citizens to learn and gain an understanding of what Truth and Reconciliation truly means. It is important that we continue to recognize that acts of reconciliation must continue perpetually and not just on national days of recognition,” says Mayor Behiel.
“Although truth and reconciliation is about more than just one day, it’s important for us to find opportunities to learn about the history of residential schools in Canada, and to reflect on our own roles in understanding and answering the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Calls to Action,” notes Amy Yeager, President and CEO of Carlton Trail College.
This free presentation will be held in-person on Wednesday, September 28 from 1:30 – 3:00 pm at Jubilee Hall in the Humboldt Uniplex. The presentation can also be viewed on Zoom at the link: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/85205472416
