All members of Treaty No. 6 are invited to participate in the annual Treaty No. 6 Recognition Day Art Contest.

Artists are asked to submit a piece that represents this theme: “As long as the sun shines, grass grows, and rivers flow.” The theme represents the original terms of the treaty when it was signed 140 years ago.

Contest winners will receive $500 and their art pieces will be used as gifts, exchanged between the Grand Chief and the Mayor on Treaty No. 6 Recognition Day at City Hall. Treaty No. 6 Recognition Day takes place on Friday, August 17, 2018.

Treaty No. 6 Recognition Day recognizes Edmonton’s connection with the First peoples of this area. The City of Edmonton created Treaty No. 6 Recognition Day in 2013 to commemorate the signing of Treaty No. 6 between the Plains and Wood Cree people and the Crown at Fort Carlton on Aug. 23, 1876. Edmonton was founded in Treaty No. 6 territory.

The deadline to submit artwork for consideration is Friday, August 3 by 11 p.m. Contest details, guidelines and submission forms can be found online.
