What do we mean when we say “we’re all treaty people”? From the original Peace and Friendship Treaties to modern land claim agreements, the history of Indigenous/settler relations in Canada cannot be properly understood without a discussion on treaties. This workshop offers a brief overview of treaties in Canada with a focus on the Robinson-Superior Treaty and Treaty #3.
Please bring your lunch and join us for this session.
ILO 2, 3, 5, 6
