Treaty 2 Territory – In 2019, the Lifelong Learning Lodge formed to provide training in Nation Development. As of February 2021, the Government of First Nations Treaty 2 Territory adopted the name The Earth Lodge. The Earth Lodge will focus on enhancing our people’s knowledge in the area of Anishinaabek Studies within the Treaty 2 Territory in a learning environment that is reflective of who we are.
Initiated by First Nations in Treaty 2 Territory, guided by the Knowledge Council, the Lodge supports all endeavors of Circles, FNT2T and local Nations. This includes the developing of programs, training, education, research and projects. The Earth Lodge is providing training in Governance, Professional Development. Land-based Learning, Language, Traditional Teachings and Wellbeing. The Earth Lodge will focus on enhancing people’s knowledge of Anishinaabek way of learning and building capacity for our Government within the Treaty 2 Territory.
The Earth Lodge will be the central hub to unite our common vision and help guide the Anishinaabe in building a bridge between our ancestral past and our prosperous future.
The Earth Lodge is located in the heart of Turtle Island of Treaty Two Territory and in the town of Dauphin is where the Government of First Nations Treaty 2 Territory and The Life Long Learning College is located. We will be expanding training programs to the Regional Government Office in Pinaymootang First Nation and creating other satellite training centers in Treaty 2 Territory.
