First Nations Treaties – More than a Promise
Today we started talking about treaties such as the ones created between the First Nations and the government of Canada in the late 19th century. These treaties were sacred agreements between First Nations and the Government of Canada and they continue to be discussed and debated to this day. We observed some basic background information as provided by the Treaty Relations Commission of Manitoba and responded to the information with some essential critical thinking questions. Students are to choose 5 of the 7 questions in the assignment to critically respond to.
