“We are all Treaty People”

I believe it is important to teach Treaty Education in every school, no matter who the students are. It is important for students to learn about diversity and how people value and beliefs differ. Students should realize that there is not one way of life. It is also important to teach Treaty Education in a variety of classes because even if none of your students are Aboriginal, we still live on Treaty Land. It is important for students to learn about the history of Treaty People because learning about the present. Also, we are all Treaty People, therefore it should be mandatory or interesting for students to learn about how that came to be.

I never considered myself a Treaty Person until last semester. I did not think that I was a Treaty Person because of my skin color and my family history. From learning more about what a Treaty Person is, I can now connect on a personal level. I have learned that we are all Treat y People because we live on Treaty Land. Just recently I found out that there was a Treaty map, and that we have to acknowledge that we are on Treaty four land.
