Semaine de reconnaissance des traités

Lundi 6 novembre 2023

En 2016, l’Ontario a adopté une loi déclarant la première semaine complète de novembre comme la Semaine de reconnaissance des traités Cet événement annuel souligne l’importance des traités et aide les élèves et les résidents de l’Ontario à en apprendre davantage sur les droits et les relations issus de traités. En apprenant davantage sur nos droits et obligations collectifs en vertu des traités, nous pouvons mieux comprendre et entretenir ces relations. La Semaine de reconnaissance des traités représente l’une des nombreuses étapes du parcours de guérison et de réconciliation de l’Ontario avec les peuples autochtones. Elle a été lancée en réponse à la Commission de vérité et réconciliation du Canada : Appels à l’action pour accroître la sensibilisation aux traités et offre aux élèves et au public une occasion importante d’apprendre pourquoi les traités sont importants.

    Revitalizing Treaty Relations From Attawapiskat

    By Wiebe, Sarah Marie
    "Life against States of Emergency responds to the central question that Theresa Spence asked the Canadian public to consider: What does it mean to be in a treaty relationship today? Arguing that treaties are matters of environmental justice, Sarah Marie Wiebe offers a nuanced discussion of the political environment in which Attawapiskat suffered repeated state-of-emergency declarations amid a climate of normalized state-sanctioned violence. Her analysis documents the slow emergency resulting from the breakdown of treaty relations."
