  • Book Fair crew, please come to the library ta last recess for an important meeting.
  • Techie Teacher Thursday is on today.  See you in the library at 11:35am!
  • November 7th is “International Inuit Day”.  It was declared a day of significance at the 2006 Inuit Circumpolar Council general assembly in Barrow, Alaska, as a day when Inuit honour the memory of Inuit Circumpolar Council’s late founding president Eben Hopson, who was born on Nov 7, 1922.  In 1976, Hopson rallied the Inuit leaders of Greenland, Canada, the United States and Russia to form an international organization(then called the Inuit Circumpolar Conference).  The North Slope borough mayor hosted the first ICC assembly in 1977 in Barrow where delegates passed 17 resolutions on Inuit land claims, Arctic environmental protection, Arctic health and technology and Inuit culture and education.  “The single most important issue facing all Inuit, regardless of where they live, is preservation of a unique culture, identity and way of life before they are destroyed by large-scale industrial development and the intrusions of southern society,”  Hopson said at the time.  Today is also an opportunity for all Canadians to reflect on the important relationship and history we share with the Inuit of Canada, as we move forward in our journey of reconciliation and a renewed Canada and Indigenous peoples.

  • What are Treaties?
    • Treaties are legally binding agreements that set out the rights, responsibilities and relationships of Indigenous peoples and the federal and provincial governments.  Ontario is covered by 46 treaty and other agreements, such as land purchases by the Crown signed between 1781 and 1930.
    • Indigenous people have a long history of making treaties with other Indigenous peoples to form alliances and share resources(hunting, gathering) within each other’s territories.  The agreements were made in the best interest of all parties involved.
  • Contemporary Treaty Issues
    • Many issues are being addressed through ongoing discussions between Indigenous peoples and the Government of Canada.  It is the hope of both parties that these issues be resolved so the treaties can be honoured the way they were intended, in peace and friendship.  Treaties between the Crown and Indigenous peoples are the basic building blocks in the creation of Canada.  Moving forward to reconciliation, the treaty-building relationship and the recognition of the rights of Indigenous peoples need to be honoured.

  • Announcement from Ms. Bambrick:
    • The Treaty Relationship: In 1763, King George of Britain issued The Royal Proclamation, confirming the original occupancy of Indigenous Peoples and paving the way for land agreements between the British Crown (government) and Indigenous Peoples.
    • The proclamation:
      • established how the British would manage land in North America following the Seven Years War
      • proclaimed that settlers could not live on the land until the Crown had signed treaties with the First Nations who occupied the territories
    • Among the earliest treaties was the 1764 Treaty of Fort Niagara, which put a renewed focus on peaceful relations between the British and First Nations, affirming and extending alliances.  The goal was to support military and commercial relationships between the parties.  Many First Nations upheld this alliance by supporting Britain in the War of 1812, ensuring the survival of British North America.
