The Onion Lake First Nation ratified their Treaty Land Entitlement on March 14, 1994 with an overwhelming majority of Band members voting yes.
The official signing took place at the Eagleview High School on Friday, April 29,1994. There were approximately 250 people present to witness this historic signing. The Great Spirit blessed us with a beautiful day so the official signing ceremony was held outdoors. The master of ceremonies was Ray Whitstone of Onion Lake and he did a splendid job, as usual. The ceremony was opened with a grand entry song by the Pipestone Creek Singers, followed by the Greeting Song sung by a number of children lead by Brian MacDonald.
The band members enjoyed many inspirational messages from guest speakers and we thank them all for being present at this important occasion. The Onion Lake Chief and Council then presented our elders 65 years and over with a Pendleton Blanket and $2,000.00 cash each. The ceremony was followed by a barbecue held for the children by the Ladies Ball Club. We would like to thank the ladies who served both the sit down supper and the barbecue for a job well done.
