Nation hits the switch on new solar power

Ermineskin's Solar Power system is officially providing clean energy!

The new installation of the Solar Panel Array north of the Maskwacis Mall will save Ermineskin money and prevent almost 980 tonnes of
greenhouse gases from entering the atmosphere. Indigenous climate leadership program in action, doing what we can to alleviate the effects of
climate change for future generations.
A green energy project which has come to fruition with the collaboration of Ermineskin leadership, NGCI, and the provincial government.

Chief Craig Makinaw- "Our Nation is committed to making the world better for our children and for future generations.
We appreciate the Alberta government's support for green projects in our community. All of us must take action to make a real difference."

“Ermineskin Cree Nation has shown great leadership in taking action to help combat the effects of climate change.
We are proud to support the Nation in their efforts to make life better for their community and for future generations.”
-Richard Feehan, Minister of Indigenous Relations


The three Treaty 6 Nations and Tsuut’ina Nation from Treaty 7 territory, came together “because a lot of the work that’s going
on (with the federal government) there hasn’t been enough consultation.
That’s what we want,” said —Ermineskin Cree Nation Chief, Craig Mackinaw.

Mackinaw spent the last two days in Gatineau, Que., participating in a national policy forum hosted by the AFN.

“A lot of the chiefs want to either reject the implementation or look at a different process based on us leading it,” he said.

Ermineskin Cree Nation Chief Craig Makinaw said of the many Treaty 6 breaches, the NRTA is the most significant, as it has left Indigenous
communities without a fair share of the resources and the economic benefits they have brought to federal and provincial governments.

He said some progress has been made in recent years to move closer to the treaty’s original intent,
but progress is often stalled by slow-moving court and justice systems.

“It’s going to be a long, long process,” Makinaw said.

The resolution calls for a fiscal relationship to be established directly with the Treasury Board
and the Department of Finance, noting that Treasury Board allocations “should fulfill
the legal obligations of the treaties, but do not.”
“The Treasury Board is kind of the key player in all of this,” said Mackinaw. 
“If we work with the Governor General and the Treasury Board we could have
that one-on-one relationship like when treaty first was signed.”
