Last Year October 2016: Red Lake Tribal Council Declares Old Crossing Treaty Day


October 3, 2017

The Red Lake tribal council voted unanimously on September 10, 2013, to establish a Red Lake Nation tribal holiday, "Old Crossing Treaty Day," to commemorate the only treaty between the United States and Red Lake Nation. The treaty was signed 153 years ago on October 2, 1863.

The holiday will not only recognize the contributions of the Red Lake Band of Chippewa Indians to the United States, but will also promote awareness of the history of Red Lake Nation. One of the critical aspects of Resolution No. 140-13 is to create an awareness of the history of the Red Lake People (to include the Old Crossing Treaty of 1863, the 1889 agreement and the 1902 agreement) each year on October 2. The Nation's educational institutions will be encouraged to participate in activities of their own choice.
