  • 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.
