Metlakatla Treaty update sessions continue tonight

Tonight marks the second of four consultation meetings with members of the Metlakatla First Nation, with officials from the Metlakatla Treaty office available to provide an update on the state of negotiations between the community and the provincial and federal officials.

This evenings engagement event takes place at the Highliner Inn, with dinner set for 5:30, the update will follow as part of the evening's agenda.

Such was the interest in this evenings session that the capacity for the venue had been reached, which has led Metlakatla officials to ask those that reserved a spot, but may have changed their plans to contact the office so that they can open up spots for those on the wait list.

The first engagement of the current sessions, took place in Metakatla on Monday.

The two remaining sessions take place in Prince George on October 3rd and Vancouver on October 4th, offering an opportunity for the Metlakatla membership outside of the North coast to receive the latest notes on the three party discussions.

More notes on the current engagement process can be found here.

The Metlakatla First Nation website offers up a range of material on the Treaty process as well as a comprehensive timeline of the History of Tsimshian people.

Updates on tonight's event can be found on the Metlakatla Facebook page.
