A Journey for Common Ground

TREATY WALK - A JOURNEY FOR COMMON GROUND, follows a group of Indigenous leaders, union health care workers, representatives of faith communities and other allies as they embark on a 14 day long walking journey from Edmonton, Alberta in Treaty 6 Territory to Calgary, Alberta in Treaty 7 Territory. This grassroots group of determined walkers explore together what it means to be treaty people working and living on common ground. The journey has an emotional impact on many of the walkers who are healthcare professionals working to deepen their understanding of treaty and Indigenous ways of knowing. In the spirit of the Cree natural laws of kindness, honesty, sharing and strength they all walk to transform themselves and the communities they visit along the way.

EXCITING NEWS! TREATY WALK has just been entered into international film festivals and will be available for online viewing after the festival season in Spring of 2020. In the meantime check back to the website to find a premiere or film festival screening in a city near you. Soon as we have our first public screening we will begin listing events here on this page.
