Indigenous Studies is an interdisciplinary field grounded in the languages, histories, geographies, and contemporary experiences of Indigenous peoples

Land Treaties

Treaties are formal agreements between nations. For Indigenous people living in Canada there are both historic and modern treaties. Most of the treaties outline land and resource distribution. Many Indigenous peoples feel that historic treaties have not been honoured. Part of reconciliation is to work towards a better understanding of treaties with Indigenous Nations living in what we now call Canada.
