Over the course of six busy days, the Lac La Ronge Indian Band (LLRIB) and Kitsaki Management celebrated 2023 Treaty Days across six communities. The first event kicked off on May 1, 2023, in Hall Lake with Kitsaki’s first kayak giveaway and two $250 gift cards. The following days featured fish fries, festivities and five more kayak giveaways giveaways in Sucker River, Grandmother’s Bay, Stanley Mission, La Ronge, and culminated in Little Red.

Treaty Days symbolize a significant time of celebration, unity, and festivity for the Lac La Ronge Indian Band, honoring the legacy of Chief James Roberts. Chief Roberts, representing the band, formally signed an adhesion to Treaty 6 in 1889. 

Treaty Days celebration highlights the strong partnership between the Lac La Ronge Indian Band and Kitsaki Management, while fostering pride, unity, and continued growth. By investing in community development and creating new opportunities for LLRIB members, Kitsaki demonstrates its commitment to preserving and empowering each community.
