Delores Lambert works in Human Resources with the Paul First Nation and says the planning started a month ago then everything began rolling into place after that.

The Paul First Nation has also been plagued by a negative stories due to some crime in the area, however Lambert hopes that their Treaty Days shows how tight knit their community really is.
