Treaties, Land and Indigenous Governance

This course focuses on the history of treaty making between Indigenous peoples and European settler-colonial governments from late-eighteenth to the early twentieth centuries (and beyond) in the lands that now constitute Canada. Some of the questions this course will examine include: How do these nation-to-nation agreements fit within a much longer history of Indigenous treaty making, diplomacy and governance? In what ways did settlers and Indigenous peoples interpret these treaties differently? How did treaty-making and the interpretation of treaties change over time? And what role can historians play in the modern interpretation of historical treaties?
