The RFF takes place on Treaty 4 land, home to the Anishinaabe, nehiyawak, Dakota, Lakota, Nakota peoples, as well as the homeland of the Métis/Michif Nation. The land is now home to a diverse population, but we are all Treaty people with a responsibility to uphold and honour the treaties. We strive to build a festival that is reflective of the communities we serve and recognize that we have to work toward reconciliation year-round.
