Humanities Studies Examine Both Sides of the Numbered Treaties

Students this week studied the Crown’s westward expansion and the resulting Numbered Treaties. To deepen their understanding, students created a wall of graffiti, featuring quotes and images related to the Numbered Treaties. One side of the wall reflected the perspective of the Crown, while the other side represented the views of the First Nations. Thoughts on the images and quotes led to interesting discussion on perspective, bias, and stereotypes, as well as reconciliation.
