In celebration of Fort Nelson First nation signing the 1910 Treaty 8 agreement with the government of Canada, the FNFN community put on a gathering this past weekend. It included horse rides, helicopter rides, crafts, a moose meat tent, traditional hand games, live music, and information booths for companies operating in the area. The Lands Department had two tents filled with displays and handed out treaty shells in the afternoon, but in the morning we cooked a pancake breakfast for the community!

It was a great weekend and a total success.
