UM commemorates 150th anniversaries of Treaty 1 and Treaty 2

The year 2021 marks the 150th anniversaries of the signings of Treaty No. 1 and Treaty No. 2 on Aug. 3 and Aug. 21, respectively.

Treaty No. 1 was the first of 11 treaties that established Western Canada. Situated in Treaty 1 territories, the University of Manitoba and National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation (NCTR) are organizing a number of initiatives to recognize the anniversary, its significance and the unfinished business of the treaties.

“The Treaty No. 1 and Treaty No. 2 anniversaries mark significant historical occasions in the land now called Manitoba,” says UM President and Vice-Chancellor Dr. Michael Benarroch. “UM supports the success of our entire province – and we are all treaty people. I encourage everyone to take the time to reflect on the treaties and Indigenous histories, as we look ahead to future generations and work together with all nations to continue to advance Reconciliation.”
