Did you know Indigenous treaties in Canada are agreements made between the Crown and Indigenous people that concern land? Indigenous people agreed to share their land in exchange for payments of one kind or another and promises that define the rights and obligations of Canada and the First Nations. Before Confederation, Britain controlled the treaty-making process. After Confederation, the federal government took control of the treaty-making process. On a deeper level, treaties are understood by Indigenous people, as sacred covenants between nations that establish a relationship between those for whom Turtle Island is an ancient homeland and those whose family roots lie in other countries. Treaties form the constitutional and moral basis of an alliance between Indigenous peoples and Canada. Treaties set out continuing treaty rights and benefits for each group.The written word of the treaties is only one part of the treaty process. From the Hodinohsho:ni perspective, wampum is an equal part of the process and carries the same weight as the written treaties.To learn more about Six Nations Land Claims, sign up for our upcoming webinar to learn more.
