Waciye, Boozhoo,

This week is being recognized as Treaties Week. Treaties are a fundamental part of the relationship between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people in  Canada. Many of us (including me) don't know enough about the treaties which were signed by our ancestors long ago, yet we are still all treaty people. I will do my best to learn more about the treaties this week. 

If you would like to do the same, you can start here.

You can also examine this map of treaties in Ontario.

And here is a short video about Treaty 9's signing over 100 years ago.
