Treaty No. 1: The Manitoba Treaty – 150 Years and Beyond

The University of Winnipeg Teaching History Institute (THI) offers a practical professional development workshop series that brings together teachers, university faculty, and other educators to explore evolving methodologies, new research directions, and cutting-edge developments in the study and practice of history. Teachers gain practical tools for the classroom through the innovative use of primary sources (manuscript, artefacts, oral history) as well as field trips to archives, universities, museums, and local communities.

This year, the University of Winnipeg Teaching History Institute returns in partnership with the Manitoba Social Science Teachers Association (MSSTA) and the Association for Canadian Studies (ACS), and is pleased to present a virtual presentation by Dr. Aimée Craft: “Treaty One - understanding the sharing relationship after 150 years.” Dr. Aimée Craft, Associate Professor at the Faculty of Common law, University of Ottawa and an Indigenous (Anishinaabe-Métis) lawyer, scholar, and author of Breathing Life into the Stone Fort Treaty, looks at the historical significance of the treaty and the treaty relationships that exist today. 

Programming will be run in conjunction with the MTS PD Day 2021 virtual conference, on October 22.
