ANISHINABEK NATION HEAD OFFICE (November 6, 2023) – Anishinabek Nation Grand Council Chief Reg Niganobe encourages everyone to take the time during the 8th annual Treaties Recognition Week to learn about treaties, including using the latest interactive learning tool: a wampum belt puzzle suitable for a classroom or for use with the family.
“Foundational knowledge on Treaties is an essential educational requirement for all people living in Ontario. 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,” states Grand Council Chief Reg Niganobe.
Treaties Recognition Week is the first week of November every year. Treaties Recognition Week honours the importance of treaties and helps Ontarians learn more about treaty rights, relationships, and responsibilities. The education and awareness of treaties made with First Nations will help Canadian citizens understand their own obligations as subjects of treaty conditions in this country.
