"We had a good, respectful, and productive conversation," Trudeau said. "I think it's critically important that politicians take the time to listen. I don't want to pretend that any of us have the answers to the challenges facing Indigenous peoples in Canada. But what I will tell you is that as a country, we can build those answers."
Edmund Bellegarde, tribal chairman and president at File Hills Qu'Appelle Tribal Council, said actions speak louder than words.
"The very action of the prime minister coming here meeting with our leaders and our elders. He didn't talk. He listened. "This is action. This is a respect. This is history in the making."
