The Ministry of Indigenous Relations and Reconciliation (MIRR) announced that Ontario has designated this week of November (November 6 to 12, 2016) as Treaties Recognition Week to promote public education and awareness about treaties and treaty relationships.
Regardless of Indigenous background, all students benefit from learning about the histories, cultures, contributions and perspectives of First Nation, Métis and Inuit peoples in Canada throughout the school year.
Treaties Recognition Week will provide an annual opportunity for teachers to plan activities about treaties and promote awareness about them in the community. The MIRR provides amazing resources for teachers and to the public to help us all understand truth and reconciliation and to create a better future for all Canadians.
