About Stamp

Marie-Anne Day Walker-Pelletier (b. 1954, in Regina, Saskatchewan) spent nearly 40 years as leader of the Okanese First Nation – a small community near Fort Qu’Appelle, Saskatchewan – the most consecutive terms ever served by an elected First Nations chief in Canada. A residential school survivor, she made women and children a focus of her efforts and was part of the Indigenous delegation that met with Pope Francis in early 2022. Her stamp features a photo taken by her daughter at a ceremony celebrating her appointment to the Order of Canada; the background is of ceremonial teepees on Treaty 4 territory.

About Stamp Series

Proud advocates for the rights and well-being of their people, the three modern-day Indigenous leaders in this inaugural series are honoured for dedicating their lives to preserving Métis, First Nations and Inuit culture and improving the quality of life of Indigenous Peoples in Canada.

The second set of stamps in the Indigenous Leaders series honours three Métis, First Nations and Inuit leaders whose tireless efforts to protect the rights, culture and welfare of their people had a profound influence on Canada’s history.
