âpahkowâyânaw: Indigenous Education Sessions, #6: Understanding Treaties: The Rights and Responsibilities of Treaty People in Today’s World
January 11, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pmFree
Join us and our guest speaker, John Brady McDonald (writer, artist, historian, musician, playwright, actor and activist) as we discuss how historic treaties affect First Nations peoples today and how treaties have shaped Indigenous and settler relations. Treaties in Canada provide a framework for the government of Canada and First Nations to work together. From Canadian policies to federal laws, treaties are an important part of Indigenous peoples’ right to self-determination.
