Riding Mountain National Park and the Coalition of First Nations with Interests in Riding Mountain National Park

“Riding Mountain National Park of Canada wants to become involved in this process as its Coalition partners frequently reference Treaty as a basis of understanding their interests. I am hoping that our joint learning will lead to a better understanding of the meaning of Treaty for all of us. This will then assist us in building stronger relationships and developing mutual initiatives for the future.” ~ Cheryl Penny, Superintendant – Riding Mountain National Park of Canada

“First Nations see Treaty as the key to their future in Canada. It’s the first relationship in regards to sharing and it’s why First Nations always mention Treaty. It’s the basis of the relationship with Canada and we have to honour that obligation. ~ Dwayne Blackbird, Coalition Coordinator – Coalition of First Nations with Interests in Riding Mountain National Park

“The TRCM will be able to better work with the communities surrounding Riding Mountain National Park creating an environment for understanding and reconciliation, relationship building and cooperation as well as securing a foundation for future collaboration in areas of environment, sustainability, diversity and a vibrant healthy existence.” ~ Treaty Commissioner, Dennis White Bird


“The purpose of the relationship, between Riding Mountain National Park of Canada and the Coalition of First Nations With Interests in Riding Mountain, is to discuss common interests and concerns with an aim towards building relations that facilitate a First Nation presence and influence on the Park Management Plan.”
