Treaty Reading Group

Jocelyn Parr and Richard Cassidy are co-facilitating a Thursday evening treaty reading series in the Library’s main-floor reading room from April 5 through May 10, 2018 —  six consecutive Thursday evenings.

There will be introductory reading and discussion of five treaties, each of which captures an era in treaty-making, from the earliest treaties prior to contact to those negotiated at the end of the 20th century. Each meeting will be devoted to reading one treaty (they are often very short) alongside contextualizing materials by contemporary Indigenous scholars. At least once during the series, an expert will speak to the group about the wider context of these documents and histories.
