U of S to Hold Original Treaty Six Document

Recently, the Montreal Lake Cree Nation has regained a historic three page document. This document, an original adhesion to Treaty 6, was signed in 1889 by leaders of the Montreal Lake Cree Nation and the Lac La Ronge Indian Band, at that time known as the Green Lake Indians. The Montreal Lake Cree Nation has given the document to the University of Saskatchewan on permanent loan, where it is held at the University Library's University Archives and Special Collections for safekeeping.
