Treaties and the Treaty Relationship Educational Package

The Canada’s History Treaties issue features guest editor Treaty Commissioner Loretta Ross from the Treaty Relations Commission of Manitoba.

Contributing writers, from throughout Canada, have shared their insights and knowledge on a wide variety of aspects of Treaty history and the Treaty Relationship.

As Commissioner Ross states in her Forward: “For too long, Canadians have learned about Treaties with First Nations from a singular, non-First Nations perspective. The goal of this special issue is to try to provide a more balanced understanding of Treaties and the Treaty relationship.”

In addition to this special edition of Canada’s History that you can download now, we will be providing educational resources over the coming months. These resources will be divided up for Grades 2–7 and Grades 7–12.

The Kayak Treaty issue, aimed at kids ages 7–14, will be made available at the end of August.
