Acting on recommendations from the first Keondaatiziying: How We Will Sustain Ourselves Conference held in 2011, conference organizers staged a follow up gathering that was held September 30 – October 2, 2013 in Kenora, Ontario.
The CGRF provided the conference organizers with a grant of $10,000 to hire a conference coordinator for this important regional conference and to support the development of a website, including a possible interactive discussion forum to further dialog around Treaty relationships, economic development, and regional sustainability. At present, the website serves as a platform for maintaining continuity year after year for this annual event that moves throughout the Treaty 3 area. It also contains an archive of past conference information.
