Halton District School Board honoured
Treaties Recognition Week (November 6-12), which included staff engagement and professional development focusing on topics such as learning about First Nations, Métis, Inuit Treaties history. For example, staff learned more about Treaties from a Haudenosaunee Knowledge Keeper during an all-day teaching session on November 9.
Treaties Recognition Week provides opportunities to educate and raise awareness about Treaties and the Treaty relationship.
“Honouring the land and territory in which we live will provide opportunities to discuss why we should honour the land and recognize everyone’s role in treaties,” explained Tammy Hardwick, the Board’s Instructional Program Leader - Diversity. “All students, staff, and community members, Indigenous and non-Indigenous, benefit from learning about the histories, cultures, contributions and perspectives of First Nations, Métis, Inuit.”
