As farmers and settlers on Turtle Island, we have been asking ourselves how we may meaningfully participate in reconciliation with the original peoples of this land. Recent developments such as the Saskatchewan Treaty Land Sharing Network shows ways in which farmers and landholders have begun the work of honouring the Treaties. Join this conversation with the National Farmers Union and Indigenous collaborators about farmer and settler reconciliation in Manitoba.

As the SK Treaty Land Sharing Network describes: “As part of these sacred commitments to live together in peace, take care of shared lands, and ensure one another’s wellbeing, Indigenous people were guaranteed that their way of life would be protected – that they would be able to move freely throughout their territories and continue to relate to the land through their own laws, practices, and protocols. The need to honour Treaty responsibilities is more critical than ever."
