August 23 is Treaty No. 6 Recognition Day. This day commemorates the signing of Treaty No. 6 between the Plains, Wood Cree, Nakota, Saulteaux and Dene people and the Crown at Fort Carlton on August 23, 1876.
August 23 this year falls on a Tuesday where the AGA is closed to the public. However, to celebrate Treaty 6 Recognition Day, we are offering free admission on Wednesday, August 24—when the Gallery is open—and invite the public to reflect on our truth and history as part of our commitment toward reconciliation.
Thank you to Capital Power’s generous support for making free admission possible.
