Aboriginal people lived in Canada long before European settlers and explorers arrived here. They lived in harmony with their environment and cared for the land and water they depended on for survival. The concept of land ownership was foreign to them. The arrival of Europeans had a drastic impact on their lives. In Learning About Treaties in Canada, elementary 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 First Nation peoples lives were affected not only in the past, but also how the process still impacts the First Nations community today. From award-winning Métis filmmaker Matt LeMay.

Includes: DVD, PDF Teacher’s Resource Guide and Student Worksheets.
