Speaker Series: Understanding the Treaties and Treaty Relationship

by Tyler Vitt - Thursday, Apr 09, 2015 at 2:38pm

A recent Maclean's magazine article depicted Winnipeg as the most racist city in Canada. In response, the Treaty Relations Commission of Manitoba and McNally Robinson, through a Speakers series, have actively countered that assertion and fostered relationship building as a vehicle for understanding and enhanced awareness on the importance of Treaties and the Treaty relationship.

Over the course of the series, various speakers will share their perspectives on the issue of racism in Winnipeg; giving a historical background on the Treaties and what the Treaty relationship is in a modern day context. The goal will be to continue to foster community dialogue  on racism, in a balanced environment. The sessions will also contribute to understandings about the roles and responsibilities of all Manitobans towards ensuring an informed and respectful relationship.

Speakers include Dr. Jean Friesen, Allen Sutherland, Kevin Lamoureux, Ovide Mercredi, Elder Harry Bone, and Aimée Craft.

This speaker series takes place in our Community Classroom, and includes four Monday sessions starting on April 13th. Each session runs from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm.

Pre-registration is required. The cost per registrant is $100.00. You may register in person at our Grant Park store, over the phone (204-475-0483) via credit card, or click here to register yourself online.
