Treaty 6 Flag gifted to U of S

The Treaty 6 flag was gifted by Chief Wallace Fox of Onion Lake First Nation to Ilene Busch-Vishniac, University of Saskatchewan president in a formal ceremony on March 12 at the U of S, to an audience of students, faculty, staff, and First Nations partners.

The flag was developed by the Onion Lake First Nation to signify the ongoing Treaty 6 relationship between First Nations and non-First Nations.  The ceremony honoured the existing relationship between the U of S and First Nations in the Treaty 6 territory, and committed to continue to work together for widespread education on Aboriginal issues.
