Harold Cardinal and Walter Hildebrandt

"It is my hope, and the hope of the Office of the Treaty Commissioner, that this publication can help provide the historical context needed to intelligently and respectfully forge new relations between First Nations people and non-Indigenous people in the province of Saskatchewan. It has already done so, in part, by facilitating the work of our office in bringing together the parties of the Federation of Saskatchewan Indian Nations and Canada to reach common understandings and to use the Treaties as a bridge from the past to the future... so that we can learn from the past and work together towards a future built on co-operation and mutual respect." — Judge David M. Arnot, Treaty Commissioner for Saskatchewan (From University of Calgary Press)
