In addition to educating Ontarians about treaty rights, obligations, and partnerships, Treaties Recognition Week honors the significance of treaties.
The eighth Treaties Recognition Week is being observed by the Anishinabek Nation.
Grand Council Chief Reg Niganobe declared in a news release that “fundamental knowledge on Treaties is an essential educational requirement for all people living in Ontario.”
Grand Council Chief Reg Niganobe says, “I encourage everyone to celebrate our Treaty partnerships by dedicating time this week to learn about your local treaties, territories, and the obligations we all carry within these agreements.”
Anishinabek Nation has released a new public education tool in observance of the occasion.
The wampum belt puzzle is a brand-new interactive educational resource that includes links to in-depth movies on treaties as well as an educational piece that defines what a treaty is.
“Thank you to Education Without Borders for providing a financial contribution to support the launch of this puzzle project,” Niganobe continued.
“The Anishinabek Nation is able to guarantee that all learners have access to practical learning resources, both in a classroom setting and for those who choose to continue their education at home, thanks to partners like Education Without Borders.”
During the eighth annual Treaties Recognition Week, Anishinabek Nation Grand Council Chief Reg Niganobe invites everyone to learn about treaties. One engaging resource to use is a wampum belt puzzle, which can be used in a classroom or as a family activity.
“All residents of Ontario must receive a basic education that includes instruction on treaties. Grand Council Chief Reg Niganobe says, “I encourage everyone to celebrate our Treaty partnerships by devoting time this week to learn about your local treaties, territories, and the obligations we all carry within these agreements.”
Every year, the first week of November is designated as Treaties Recognition Week. In addition to educating Ontarians about the rights, obligations, and connections that come with signing treaties, Treaties Recognition Week honors the significance of treaties. Canadian citizens will be better able to comprehend their own responsibilities as subjects of treaty conditions in this nation if they are educated about and aware of the treaties made with First Nations.
On this day, the wampum belt puzzles, a brand-new interactive educational tool that comes in three sizes to suit different age groups, officially premiere. The puzzle includes an educational component that defines a treaty and provides connections to films that delve deeper into the subject of treaties.
