When the United Nations approved the Study on Treaties, Agreements and other Constructive Arrangements between States and Indigenous Peoples in May 1989, Treaty Six Chiefs invited the Special Rapporteur, Miguel Alfonso Martínez, to attend an Elders and Treaty Six Chiefs' meeting. The meeting was not an attempt to make a historical reconstruction. It was a spiritual and descriptive re-creation of the signing of Treaty Six, which covers an area of over 130,000 square miles. This IWGIA document aims to reflect the event, with the Elders discussing the conditions under which the Treaty was negotiated and signed and its aftermath.
