There has been requests from all organizations, schools looking for awareness and education with respect of the indigenous people and the treaties that were signed. There is a need for this type of education and awareness. The Earth Lodge have keepers that can come and present the history of the territory and indigenous culture to all people to have a better understanding of our ways and traditions. There is an event marking the making of Treaty 2 and the 150th year since the making of the treaty. This will take place from August 16-21,2021 at Eagle Island in Ebb and Flow nation.
