In this session, Janice Makokis will provide a overview of the oral understanding of Treaty as passed down from Elders and knowledge keepers she's had the privilege of learning from and working with. The importance of understanding Treaty from an indigenous perspective is imperative for teachers, students and all Canadians as this is the foundation of the relationship between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples in the country we know as Canada. Drawing upon stories, nehiyaw (Cree) teachings, ceremonies and nêhiyaw mâmitonêyihcikan (Cree thought/ worldview) Janice will share how learning and understanding Treaty is imperative in teaching both Indigenous and non-Indigenous students to understand Indigenous history and laws, which facilitates better relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples. Janice will connect the stories and teachings of Treaty with the current Truth and Reconciliation Commission's message of moving forward together in reconciliation. Educational awareness, curriculum development and the role of teachers in the public education system play a significant role in making change to move Canada towards meaningful conversations around Canada's true history and how Canada can realize reconciliation.
