Smudging by burning sage is an ancient healing practice of the Cree and Ojibway peoples of the plains. Sage is often burned to start a ceremony or to mark a significant moment, in this case, the sharing of knowledge and news about our journey at the Peguis Treaty Land Entitlement Trust.

Peguis May 15, 2021 - Peguis Treaty Land Entitlement Trust (TLE) held its 11th Annual General Meeting (AGM) 2020 via VIRTUAL. Peguis Beneficiaries were able to join by Zoom, Facebook and listen to the Peguis Country Rock Radio Station. Apart from the 10-minute power blackout which came at the end of the meeting, the event was not only a technological success, but a financial success as well in which the Trust performed well through the year despite the pandemic. Financial Trustee – Chair, Sherry Sutherland said that the event was a demonstration of how Peguis has been able to use technologies to connect with the community. She said: “A major challenge over the past year has been the pandemic and meeting via Virtual. But it’s been a good transition.”
