Honour Bound: Onion Lake and the Spirit of Treaty Six
The International Validity of Treaties with Indigenous Peoples
When the United Nations approved the Study on Treaties, Agreements and other constructive arrangements between States and Indigenous Peoples in May, 1989, Treaty Six Chiefs invited Special Rapporteur Miguel Alfonso-Martinez to attend an Elders and Treaty Six Chiefs' meeting. The Chiefs wanted the Elders to help communicate their understanding to the Special Rapporteur and to discuss Treaties and Treaty-making from an Indigenous perspective. This volume presents the transcript from this gathering.
