The Treaty Relationship: Settler Colonialism in Canada Virtual Public Talk #1

The Treaty Relationship: Settler Colonialism in Canada Virtual Public Talk #1
Presentation by Annie Battiste

This session begins with introductions, protocols of place, an overview of the diverse treaties in Canada. Participants will understand what a treaty is, various treaties in Canada from peace and friendship to modern treaties, the promises and provisions, and spirit and intent of the numbered treaties.

Named after her maternal grandmother, Annie Battiste, is a proud Mi'kmaw woman and member of Potlotek First Nation situated in Unama'ki (Cape Breton, Nova Scotia). She is a certified teacher, holding a bachelor's degree and master's degree (Educational Foundations) from the University of Saskatchewan.


This is the first in a series of public virtual talks around the Settler Colonialism in Canada: Perspectives, Comparisons, Cases project, which will also include a workshop, conference, graduate symposium, and publications gathering researchers from a variety of backgrounds. These virtual public talks are meant to act as an ongoing and living acknowledgement of the historical, existing, and possible relationships to the land and on the land.

The project is led by Emily Grafton (U Regina), David MacDonald (Guelph), and Jérôme Melançon (U Regina)
