Treaty 7 Elders Symposium
Fort Calgary - Mohkinstsis
In February 2013, the first iteration of Making Treaty 7 was created by a small group of artists and elders at the Banff Centre for Arts & Creativity, and then presented to the Treaty 7 Elders. This symposium gathered well over 100 elders and knowledge keepers from across the Treaty 7 territory to give their input and approval to the project. This weekend gathering was the largest gathering of elders to take place in the territory since the signing of the treaty in 1877.
