AnishinabeTreaty Dakota Awareness Ride

Press Statement
The Southern Chiefs Organization (SCO) led by Grand Chief Murray Clearsky will embark on a mission on horseback to educate our non-indigenous Treaty partners on the importance and positive impacts of having Canada work with the original peoples of this land on a comprehensive Treaty Implementation strategy. This journey is being conducted to demonstrate to all of the historic, cultural significance of the entering into nation to nation agreements between the Indigenous peoples of this land and the new arrivals now known as Canadians. This overland trek will begin simultaneously with riders from the Dakota Nations, the Waywayseecappo and Keeseekowenin Anishinabe Nations on July 4, 2013. The riders will leave their communities and travel up Manitoba Provincial Trunk Highway 45 to Highway 16 (Yellowhead Route) to Lloydminster, Saskatchewan and then north to the Onion Lake Cree Nation. The ride will culminate at Onion Lake in time for them to participate in a four day Treaty Nations gathering starting on July 14, 2013.

The riders will visit towns, cities and settlements along the scheduled route and hand out information leaflets. The Grand Chief and his co-participants will converse with people highlighting both the short and long term positive impacts of Treaty implementation in all areas, especially in the social, health, economic and judicial sectors which continues to cost the Canadian public huge amounts of money. The stabilization of Indigenous communities through solid, social and economic growth will result in a reduction of costs in all sectors. Treaty Implementation will result in all people in this country thriving together as a global success story.
