The land allocation for first Nations People was 160 acres for a family of 5 in the 1870s but there was no provision for the band or the group the made the treaty. As a result, the bands have remained unsustainable economically and socially since then. This is in spite of being promised or a term put into the Treaty 8 negotiations where the Commissioners promised no forced military service and no taxation of Indians AND the promised the Indians "... a fair apportionment land when the Settlers arrive in the area. Well, those settlers arrived and bands are so small they are included in the massive lands allocated to municipalities. Thats right Treaty 8 as discussed in the Supreme Court Case of Benoit v. Canada.
