Making Treaty 7 Cultural Society is a non-profit organization and a registered charity that explores the historical significance of the events at Blackfoot Crossing in 1877, while investigating the consequences and implications of Treaty 7 to date. Artistic Director, Justin Many Finger’s mission is to work together with existing arts organizations here in Mohhkintstis (Calgary) and to bring this city to the national playground for Indigenous arts on Turtle Island; to support the creation of original works and pathways for theatre, dance, visual art, and music production by Indigenous creators.

Making Treaty 7 Cultural Society would like to acknowledge the late Elk Shadow/Pona Ko’Taksi, also known as Michael Green, and Middle Bull/Tatsikiistamik, also known as Narcisse Blood. Elk Shadow was the founder and visionary behind the Making Treaty 7 project. We celebrate his commitment to a shared belief that We are all Treaty people. We are committed to ensuring that his spirit will live on. Making Treaty 7 Cultural Society recently took up residency in The GRAND Theatre and has just announced its first in-house season.

Works can be offered for sale and all payment goes to the artist.
