Date & Time:

This year marks both the 10th anniversary of the Chiniki Lecture and the 140th anniversary of the signing of Treaty 7. Our lecture, titled “Indigenous History and Reflections on 140 Years of Treaty 7,” will feature presentations from Edmonton historian Walter Hildebrandt, coauthor of The True Spirit and Original Intent of Treaty 7, and Calgary historian Ian Getty and University of Calgary Professor Emeritus Donald Smith, authors of One Century Later: Western Canadian Reserve Indians since Treaty 7. As in past years, each presentation will be followed by a response by a speaker from the Stoney Nakoda First Nation community.
