Reconciliation, Relationships and Treaty 11 Centenary


Treaty 11 was signed one hundred years ago. It is the last of the numbered treaties in Canada. It was signed between the Crown and representatives of the Dehcho, Tłı̨chǫ, Sahtu and Gwich'in Peoples in 1921 with an adhesion signed in Fort Liard in 1922. Covering 950,000 km2, Treaty 11 covers most of the Mackenzie District in the Northwest Territories. The signing of Treaty 11 was a watershed event that cemented a relationship between the Crown and many Indigenous Peoples living in the Northwest Territories. 

On July 7, Dene National Chief Norman Yakeleya will speak about Treaty 11, relationships with the Crown and the treaty's legacy of change and reconciliation.
