Steps towards truth and reconciliation are not only becoming much larger now, but more visible.

On October 13th, the City of Moose Jaw and Converging Pathways Consulting permanently raised a Treaty Four flag at the Tourism Moose Jaw building, for the enjoyment of all who get to pass by and see it.

"I think it's not only raising our own cities profile but it's also raising our awareness and you know if we can do it then other cities will be able to do it in and I think we're breaking some ice here," said Mayor Fraiser Tolmie.

Following a pipe cermony and the blessing of the flag, Gerry Stonechild raised the flag to it's new and permanent home.

Many dignitaries spoke at the raising, such as Mayor Tolmie, Treaty Four Spokesperson Tribal Chief Edmund Bellegarde and many others.

Along with the flag raising, an announcement was made that Atamiskakewak 2018 will be held in Moose Jaw in April.

"That means it's Plains Cree and it means shaking hands with each other and greeting," explained Kallie Wood, Owner of Converging Pathways. "So we brought it to Moose Jaw, the friendly city, because we know how great our residents are here."

The national gathering will bring thousands of people to our town the event.

"I think more than anything im really excited for the reaction of the city. More than anything I want to see people be engaged in a different way. The whole concept of what Atemiskakewak is doing is engaging everyone," said Jackie L'Heureux-Mason.

"I feel like I am every bit as part of this and that's what I think I'm excited to see the people of Moose Jaw and the people who are attending is just to feel so connected to the whole reconciliation process."
