Each year, the City of Edmonton, together with the Confederacy of Treaty No. 6 First Nations, hosts Treaty No. 6 Recognition Day at City Hall. This year’s event will be held on Friday August 17, 2018.
The event includes an exchange of gifts between the outgoing Grand Chief, current Grand Chief and the Mayor as a symbol of their commitment to collaboration, respectful dialogue and exploring shared opportunities.
Call for Submissions
The Confederacy of Treaty No. 6 First Nations and the City of Edmonton are launching a call for submissions for a fine/decorative art. The goal of this art contest is to encourage all people of all skills and abilities to express their ideas of reconciliation through fine and decorative art.
Anyone living within Treaty No. 6 territory (in and around Edmonton) is considered a member of Treaty No. 6, and is encouraged to participate in this art contest.
The Confederacy and the City would like this year’s gift exchange to focus on art pieces reflecting the theme “...as long as the sun shines, waters flow, and the grass grows...” This theme represents the terms of Treaty No. 6.
If your piece is chosen as the gift, you will receive $500 for the purchase of your artwork. You also get the pleasure of knowing your piece will proudly be placed in the office of the Confederacy or at City Hall to symbolize a new dawn in Nation-to-Nation relationship-building.
Submission deadline is 11pm on Friday August 3, 2018.
