The University of New Brunswick’s will hold its very first Peace and Friendship Treaty Days this Autumn from October 28th to the 30th, hosted by the Mi’kmaq-Wolastoqey Centre. According to the event:

We will celebrate the peace and friendship treaties signed by the British Crown and the Wabanaki peoples of the Maritimes between 1725 and 1799 and how the peace and friendship treaties continue to define the relationship between the Crown and Indigenous peoples today. We hope that Peace and Friendship Treaty Days will encourage all of us to build towards reconciliation between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Canadians. Along with public lectures on the evenings of October 28th and 29th and displays of Indigenous arts, crafts, and cultures and the Wabanaki and English understandings of the peace and friendship treaties, the centerpiece of Peace and Friendship Treaty Days, 2015 is a symposium, “Towards Reconciliation: Fulfilling the Promise of the Peace and Friendship Treaties” on October 29 and 30, at the Wu Conference Centre on UNB’s Fredericton campus …
