Issues surrounding first nations people dominated debate in the Saskatchewan legislature Thursday.
NDP leader Ryan Meili says the province must do more to support first nations people in areas of income, health, education and justice.
He says over 80 percent of those in the prison system are indigenous.
Meili says there are high levels of HIV, diabetes, and suicides and other issues related to poverty in the first nations population.
Premier Scott Moe says investments have been made in aboriginal education, job creation, training and justice.
But he admits more needs to be done and made a committment for a call to action to do more.
Moe also pointed out the province provides 8 million dollars for aboriginal justice and crime prevention programs.
He also said a promise to first nations for the so-called sixties scoop of children into foster care will be coming as soon as possible.
