Abstract: 

Grades 4-8.

In this DVD, students will come to understand the circumstances that led to the process of treaty making including the fur trade, western and northern expansion, and the 7 Year War. Treaties are compared to promises or solemn covenants. We begin to understand how their negotiation was flawed and how Indigenous peoples’ lives were affected, not only in the past, but also how the process still impacts the First Nations community today.
