Welcome to Treaty 6 First Nations
The Confederacy of Treaty Six First Nations was created in the Spring of 1993 with the purpose of serving as the United Political voice for those Treaty Nations who are signatories of Treaty No. 6 for the continued protection of the fundamental Treaty, Inherent and Human Rights of the Treaty peoples of those Nations.
The Confederacy of Treaty Six First Nations is dedicated to ensuring that the terms, spirit and intent of Treaty No.6 are honored and respected. The right of the Treaty No. 6 First Nations to self-determination must be honoured and respected.
Self Determination includes both the right to choose their own governmental and political structures, and to direct the social, cultural, spiritual and economic advancement of their peoples.
At the July Confederacy of Treaty No. 6 First Nations Annual General Meeting, Chief Randy Ermineskin was appointed by the Maskwacis Nations Chiefs, to assume the role of Grand Chief. Chief Ermineskin began his political career as a councillor under the leadership of his late brother Chief Gerry Ermineskin in 2001. Today, both as Chief of Ermineskin and Grand Chief he knows there are many challenges for the first nations but building unity and a common vision is key to working and moving ahead.
Chief Ermineskin has always been an advocate for Education being an Educator as a Principal and as a Teacher. He holds a teaching degree and a Master of Arts in Leadership in Administration which allows him to encourage and mentor the next generation of First Nation leaders. He believes itís important to acknowledge those who have paved the way for First Nations to finally be invited to discussions that have a direct effect on our future.
He and his wife, Fran have 3 daughters and 1 son along with 9 grandchildren. Chief Ermineskin has always promoted and has been involved with youth and sport also through coaching in various sports at the North American Indigenous Games. He feels that it is very important to encourage First Nations to pursue healthy lifestyles. He is a board member of the World Indigenous Nations-Sports (WIN-Sport) and a past board member of Aboriginal Physical Activity Cultural Circle (APACC).
