About this webinar

This webinar provides an overview of the Treaty Relations Commission of Manitoba's Treaty Education Initiative (TEI), which is a K-12 education mandate. The presentation focuses on how the initiative is meant to support teachers in incorporating treaty essential learnings into their programs and provides context on how the TEI supports ongoing national education movements to indigenize curricula. This webinar is part of the Treaties and the Treaty Relationship webinar series which is presented in collaboration with the Treaty Relations Commission of Manitoba.
