The Federation of Saskatchewan Indian Nations says nearly half a million acres of land remains outstanding in treaty settlements in the province.

Vice Chief Bobby Cameron says the FSIN wants to fast track the process so the land can be rightfully turned over.

Cameron says the land means economic opportunity.

Twenty years ago, Prime Minister Brian Mulroney, Premier Roy Romanow and 25 chiefs signed an agreement to finalize the claims.

Since then, nearly $600 million has been provided for land purchases totaling two million acres.

So far, about 800,000 acres have achieved reserve status, but another 400,000 remain stalled.
