A treaty is a legally binding agreement between nations. European countries colonizing North America made treaties with the Indigenous Peoples occupying the land. These agreements often set out rules of governance, land use and the relationship between parties. What do these treaties mean to the Indigenous communities and how have they been impacted by them?
There are 46 treaties covering the province of Ontario including three numbered treaties, two Robinson treaties, two Williams treaties and 30 Upper Canada treaties. For too long, Canadians have learned about Treaties with First Nations from a singular, non-First Nations perspective. The goal of this series is to try to provide a more balanced understanding of Treaties and the Treaty relationship from a local perspective.
In this series, participants will learn about:
Learn about treaties from a local perspective, including the Indigenous communities that are local to London, Ontario and area including Chippewa of the Thames, Munsee-Delaware Nation and Oneida Nation of the Thames (CMO)
