The Legislative Assembly mandated the Executive of the FSIN to coordinate and facilitate the development of comprehensive strategy to establish District/Tribal off reserve Treaty organizations.
This study would address the following:
The Saskatoon Treaty Indian Council has held a series of meetings to address these and other concerns.
One of its main objectives is "to lobby for services for off reserve Treaty Indians". However, it is also concerned by the need to remain affiliated with the FSIN, the collective voice of all Treaty Indians in the province; the fact that a large part of the FSIN's constituents reside off reserve; that the current delivery of services provided to Treaty off reserve constituents are virtually non-existent; that there is no recognized formal process to exercise Treaty and Inherent rights by off reserve Treaty Indian population; that new resources and new monies should not affect funding arrangements as they exist today at the Band level.
Sitting on the Advisory Council are: Vi Munroe, A/Chairperson, Maynard Quewezance, Grant Severeight, Tyrone Tootoosis, Elmer Crane, Eldon Baptiste, Delmar Quewezance and Ed Severeight. They conduct weekly meetings. Two general membership meeting are also held each month.
The next General Membership Meeting will be on February 28 at the SIMFC for the election of officers.
