September 2021: Truth and Reconciliation
Since time immemorial, Indigenous Peoples living on Turtle Island engaged in treaties, either verbally or through ceremony. It was only after the arrival of Europeans that treaties began to be written down or become more like contracts. The following educational resources were developed as a way to introduce students and teachers to the diversity of historic and present-day treaties and agreements.
