Share Land

Sharing land is fundamental to the Treaty agreements that are intended to govern our coexistence on these territories. Members of the Treaty Land Sharing Network welcome Indigenous people to gather plants and medicines, hunt, and practice ceremony on the land that we farm. We believe this is a critical step toward upholding our responsibilities as Treaty people. The Treaty Land Sharing Network currently includes 52 locations and over 37,000 acres across Treaty 4 and Treaty 6. Our goal is to continue to expand the network of land that can be accessed, and we are always looking for new members.

“If we accept that 'We are all Treaty people,' then surely we can establish a different and better way forward for rural Saskatchewan."

Morley and Paula Maier
Cattle and grain farmers
Yorkton, Treaty 4

“Sharing the land is an important first step to improving relations with Indigenous people. And we have learned more about the land we farm from the people we’ve met through the Treaty Land Sharing Network.”

Mary Smillie and Ian McCreary
Livestock and grain farmers
Bladworth, Treaty 4 and Treaty 6

"As a farmer, it is important to me to acknowledge the history of this land and live here in a way that works to honour my Treaty responsibilities as a settler. The Treaty Land Sharing Network has connected me with a community of people – both settler and Indigenous – who are committed to transforming land access and stewardship and digging deep into what it means to be in right relations with the ancestors of these lands and their descendants."

Rachelle Ternier
Farmer and seed saver
Murray Lake, Treaty 6

“Indigenous people are born with inherent rights to the land, and the skills and responsibilities need to be taught and shared with our young; it is integral to our future. The Treaty Land Sharing Network allows us to practice our inherent right.”
