Students will learn about the different types of treaties (modern and historic) and land agreements in Canada and their relevance today. They will learn to recognize and acknowledge the traditional territory they live on. They will use the timeline of the Indigenous Peoples Map to explore the treaty-making process in Canada.
Students will explore historical relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people in Canada. Using the Indigenous Peoples Map they will study the distribution of Residential Schoolsin Canada. They will be introduced to the Residential School timeline. They will reflect on the multi-generational consequences of Residential Schools.
