AUGUST 2 - 11, 2019

On behalf of Chief and Council, it is my pleasure to welcome you all to the 45th Annual Treaty and York Boat Days celebration in our beautiful community of Norway House! We thank you and your families for joining us in our annual community celebration and in commemorating the heritage, traditions and rich history of our Cree Nation.

It is an exciting time for Norway House. We have amazing events planned for you and we are thrilled to share this time with you. You know we are facing a time of remarkable change, great challenges, and exciting opportunities. We are proud that our 45th Treaty & York Boat Days will enhance and provide cultural, recreational, social, and educational activities to the all participants through the delivery of physical, mental, spiritual and social events in our annual celebration. A major highlight of our celebration is the World Championship York Boat Races in memory of Henry and Mary Ann Muminawatum and the Joe Keeper Memorial Marathon along with the Gospel Jamboree (July 27-29), Jordan's Principle Parade, square dance competition, men's fastball tournament, youth and adult country talent shows and much more!

We would like to acknowledge the dedication and hard work of our Treaty and York Boat Days Committee members, coordinators and volunteers without whom this event would not be possible. They spent many hours meeting, planning and organizing all of the events to ensure that we have an enjoyable and successful celebration. We would also like to send a huge thank you to our generous sponsors who contributed to our 45th Annual Treaty and York Boat Days.

We hope you have a fun, safe, and enjoyable visit. Thank you for joining us for our annual celebration. Ekosani.

Chief Larson Anderson
