You will see some new flags on the Albert Street bridge in Regina.
Friday marks the official anniversary of the signing of Treaty 4, which took place September 15th, 1874 in Fort Qu’Appelle, Sask.
Mayor Michael Fougere says the flags are to honour the contribution Indigenous people have made to the building and shaping of Regina.
Treaty 4 is a formal agreement signed by the British Monarch and First Nations people, and is the only First Nations treaty in Canada which includes a corresponding Indigenous interpretation.
The intent of the Treaties was to create and foster mutually beneficial arrangement based on friendship, peace and goodwill.
Regina is located within traditional territory of the Metis.
