Today marks the 150th anniversary of the signing of Treaty 1. This is not only significant for our friends in Manitoba but for all Canadians as this was the first of the eleven numbered treaties that were signed after confederation and are an important part of our history. As Christians are reflecting on what it means to be in good relation with each other, it is useful to contrast the treaty-making process with the implementation of the Indian Act. This webinar by Jean Friesen on behalf of Canada’s History and the Treaty Relation Commission of Manitoba is one of the assigned materials in Horizon’s Indigenous Ministry course.

For more information on Treaty 1 activities check out treatyonenation.ca/150-2 or follow CHVN for reflections from Christian leaders throughout the day.
