Historic First Nations Pictograph Returning To Saskatchewan

In February, I posted a story about an important historic pictograph that a Saskatchewan First Nations Band was trying to recover and repatriate.

Chief Pasqua of the Pasqua First Nation produced the drawing, which translates and represents his understanding of the 1874 Treaty Four negotiations between the Plains Cree and the Crown. The pictograph is considered to be unique in that it provides a solely First Nations perspective of the time.

A number of groups are working together to help bring the pictograph back to Saskatchewan, including the Pasqua First Nation, the File Hills Qu'Appelle Tribal Council, the Royal Saskatchewan Museum, the United Church of Canada and the Federation of Saskatchewan Indian Nations. Some individuals have also contributed money for the cause. Now, the Government of Saskatchewan has committed $60,000 to the repatriation of the document.
