Canada By Treaty explores treaties: those legal agreements with Indigenous peoples that allowed non-Indigenous people to live on and own land in what is now Canada. The exhibit responds to the 150th anniversary of Confederation by explaining in accessible language the long history of treaty-making, and how and why these agreements were essential to the foundation of modern Canada.
Canada By Treaty is co-curated by fourth year undergraduate student James Bird, Nehiyawak (Cree), Indigenous Studies and Architecture, and Professors Laurie Bertram and Heidi Bohaker, Department of History. The exhibit draws on content created by students in Professor Bohaker’s Fall 2016 joint fourth year/graduate seminar HIS419H: Canada by Treaty: Alliances, Title Transfers and Land Claims.
