The Saulteau First Nation agreed in 1914 to adhesion to Treaty 8.   Treaty 8 was negotiated with many First Nations in Northeast BC and Northwest Alberta in 1899 but Saulteau members were busy hunting and fishing to provide for their families and it took until 1914 to have the community agree to adhere to the treaty. In recent years some community members have suggested that the provisions outlined in Treaty 8 need to be updated to reflect the changes that have occurred in the past century, and should more accurately describe in writing what was proposed 100 years ago by word-of-mouth by government agents.
