“The undertaking negotiations and ultimate agreement of Kapyong to our people represents repatriation of our traditional lands in Treaty One Territory, where the original signing of the numbered treaties among two Nations took place, our Indigenous ancestors and Canada. Today’s Canada, Manitoba and Winnipeg must be ready to bridge the cultural divide through the repatriation of our lands and working together with Winnipeg’s Indigenous Accord, Manitoba’s Treaty Land Entitlement Agreements and Canada’s Truth and Reconciliation. Reconciliation at Kapyong represents opportunity and offers a new way of living together. We are ready Canada are you?”
Chief Glenn Hudson, Peguis First Nation.
