89ers Fun Fact:

On this day 132 years ago in 1889, the Lac La Ronge Indian Band signed an Adhesion to Treaty Six under Chief James Roberts (along with William Charles of what is now Montreal Lake Cree Nation) on the northeastern shore of Molanosa (Montreal Lake, Northern Saskatchewan). To this day, we continue use the 89ers name as a source of pride and to educate the public. The numbered Treaties were agreements between the Crown and Indigenous people, which came with certain expectations and obligations intended to benefit all people. As the saying goes, we are all Treaty people and, as such, you’re all 89ers!
