The Humboldt and District Museum invites the public to join them on Wednesday, January 24 for an in-person Lunch and Learn talk from the Office of the Treaty Commissioner entitled “Building Your Next Steps for Truth and Reconciliation Through Treaty Implementation.” The presentation was rescheduled from the previous date in November. 

Shaid Heimbecker and Rhett Sangster will present on the Office of the Treaty Commissioner’s work to advance Truth and Reconciliation, providing attendees with a framework and tools to examine and advance their own next steps forward. Participants are invited to bring a lunch to the Museum to listen to this important talk in person. 

Rhett Sangster is the Director, Reconciliation and Community Partnerships for the OTC.  He works with the Office of the Treaty Commissioner, coordinating efforts to engage both the public and community leaders on the nature of truth and reconciliation in Saskatchewan. This process aims to work with as many partners as possible to identify shared priorities and a broadly-owned vision for the future. Rhett grew up in Treaty 6 territory (Tisdale, Saskatchewan) and is a graduate of the University of Saskatchewan (B.A. Political Studies). 

Shaid Heimbecker is a member of the Muskoday First Nation on Treaty 6 territory. She was eager to learn about the Treaties, Canada’s history and the importance of her culture when she was in her adolescence and had the opportunity to work casually for the OTC from 2010 to 2015 where she prepared Treaty Kits, Prepared DVD’s and educational binders, attended booths at various events, and was also a daycamp leader where various traditional activities were done, traditional food was prepared and also helping the children to understand their culture. 

This talk is part of the Relationship Building and Reconciliation Through Living Heritage pilot project, a partnership between the City of Humboldt, the Office of the Treaty Commissioner, the Aboriginal Friendship Centres of Saskatchewan, and Heritage Saskatchewan. 

This presentation will take place from 12pm to 1pm in person at the Museum.  The event is free and everyone is welcome. Please call 306.682.5226 or email for more information!
