Welcome to Treaty 6 First Nations
The Confederacy of Treaty Six First Nations was created in the Spring of 1993 with the purpose of serving as the United Political voice for those Treaty Nations who are signatories of Treaty No. 6 for the continued protection of the fundamental Treaty, Inherent and Human Rights of the Treaty peoples of those Nations.
The Confederacy of Treaty Six First Nations is dedicated to ensuring that the terms, spirit and intent of Treaty No.6 are honored and respected. The right of the Treaty No. 6 First Nations to self-determination must be honoured and respected.
Self Determination includes both the right to choose their own governmental and political structures, and to direct the social, cultural, spiritual and economic advancement of their peoples.
Chief Tony Alexis was first elected to council at his home community of Alexis Nakota Sioux Nation when he was just 25 years old.
He was appointed by former AFN National Chief Phil Fontaine to the National Youth Council, earned an Alberta Aboriginal Leadership award and has worked with Alberta chiefs through the former First Nation Resource Council.
He was then elected Chief of Alexis Nakota in 2013 and enjoys serving his community, specializing in business and policy development.
Chief Tony was appointed by Motion of the Chiefs at the Annual General Meeting as Grand Chief of the Confederacy of No.6 First Nations in July of 2015.
Chief Tony is also an internationally accomplished public speaker who is able to connect to people from all walks of life.
He developed The Alexis Principles based on the life skills teachings passed down from his father.
The Alexis Principles legacy creates positive transactions catering to the business world that incorporates cross-cultural teachings to help create new ways of understanding.
Chief Tony keeps connected to his culture through promoting native heritage, encourages ongoing Treaty dialogue with governments and practices a traditional way of life. He implements the laws based upon ceremonial lodge traditions that promote respect, honor, discipline and humility into his daily life.
He believes the keys to success are through consistent focus, faith in the Creator and hard work.
