Spring Break Fun at U of T: Wampum Belts Talk

Date: Thursday, April 15, 2021
Time: 1:00 – 2:00 pm
Location: The webinar link will be shared with you via email prior to the session start time.

What are Wampum Belts? They can represent and seal the rules for agreements, relationships and Treaties, much more than a piece of paper with words on it – that’s why we talk about making Treaties, rather than just signing them. A Treaty represents a relationship and explains how First Nations and government people agree to treat each other. We will talk about how agreements are made and what happens when they are not kept. We will also learn how a spoon has the potential to feed many!

Facilitator: Bonnie Jane Maracle, Indigenous Learning Strategist, U of T First Nations House
