Deputy Premier and Minister of Education Ken Krawetz recognized Horizon School Division staff, students and parents in the legislative assembly on May 19 for the division's production of a treaty education video.
"This video reflects the Saskatchewan Government's mandate to incorporate treaty education in all kindergarten to Grade 12 classrooms," Krawetz said. "This video demonstrates how treaty knowledge is important for students to better appreciate our province's past and present. Learning about treaties also promotes cultural appreciation and understanding through teachings that respect and honour First Nations."
The video's script was written by high school students from Wadena, Wynyard, Raymore, Punnichy, and Humboldt who were brought together by Horizon School Division to produce the two-minute video. The video focuses on the importance of learning about treaties through Treaty Essential Learnings, a learning resource that can be found in schools across the province, as well as the perspectives of elders and the Office of the Treaty Commissioner.
