Treaty 2 Territory – Today our Knowledge Council has been consistently gathering to support the growth of the Government of FNT2T . One of our most consistent council’s has been our Knowledge Council. Formerly known as our Elders Council prior to the formation of our government on 12 June 2018, they have been our support and knowledge towards governance, history and administration.
They provide recommendations and guide the Governing Council and other Councils in their deliberations. The Knowledge Holders/Keepers participate at all meetings to give their needed and valued guidance.
