The History of Treaty Making - Day 1

The Office of the Treaty Commissioner in partnership with Saskatchewan Teachers’ Federation presents the following session.

The History of Treaty Making – Day 1

This workshop is designed to increase knowledge, enhance individual self-awareness and strengthen skills for any professional working in Saskatchewan. The workshop focuses on the history of treaties made in what is now known as Saskatchewan. The day begins with a jigsaw activity where participants work in groups.  A First Nations Elder will share personal life stories in a variety of areas such as experiences in residential schools, living with the Indian Act, some cultural teachings and contemporary issues. A treaty teacher leader (TTL) will be present to discuss her/his duties and how a TTL can be of assistance within their school and school division. Some resources from the Treaty Kit are utilized to model how they can be used in the classroom.

Participants will:

  • Learn how diversity is reflected in the classroom, school, community, etc.
  • Learn how sharing is a concept of the treaty-making process.
  • Learn the differences between First Nations and the settler community, and how they differ on concepts such as land ownership, worldview, a promise is a promise, etc.
