Saugeen Ojibway Nation Treaty Map

The above image is a portion of a downloadable Treaty Map and poster, available at the link below, provided by the Saugeen Ojibway Nation Environmental Office and Bruce County Museum & Cultural Centre.

This week is Treaties Recognition Week, November 6 to 12, a week designated to learning more about treaty rights and responsibilities in Ontario, and the Bruce County Museum and Cultural Centre (BCM&CC) has prepared new online educational resources for educators and the public.

In a November 8 media release from the County of Bruce, included in the resources are recorded presentations from the Museum’s November 3 event with Trish Meekins, a knowledge keeper for the Saugeen Ojibway Nation (SON). The presentations, attended by nearly 200 students from GC Huston Public School, focused on the importance of treaties in Canada, and specifically the treaty history that relates to the lands in SON territory.

Recordings of the presentations will be added to the Museum’s online Education Centre, in addition to a new Saugeen Ojibway Nation Territory poster and map that has been provided by the Environmental Office of the Saugeen Ojibway Nation and the BCM&CC.

Other learning resources include downloadable activities and videos designed to deepen children’s understanding of treaties.

These new resources, including the downloadable map, can be accessed by visiting
