Treaty Tales Trailer

November 29, 2019

Kookoo, tell me a story. A long time ago there
were many First Nations people living on Turtle Island. They respected the animals
and Mother Earth. They lived off the land and celebrated to the rhythm of the
drum. One day big ships came from far away and brought many new people to the land. The
newcomers became friends with the First Nations people. They shook hands and
smoked the pipe to honour this friendship. But as more newcomers arrived, the First
Nations people saw their way of life changing. What happened? They made treaties. They agreed to share the land
and the newcomers agreed to provide special rights and privileges to the
First Nations people. These treaties were to last as long as the sun shines, the grass grows and the water flows. We need to honour the treaties because we are all
treaty people. Neepin, it is your responsibility to share this knowledge. I will.
