Treaty Day & Mi'kmaq History month in Nova Scotia

Posted by FishWIKS on October 1, 2020 in News

October 1 was proclaimed Treaty Day by Grand Chief Donald Marshall Sr. in 1986, to commemorate the Treaty of Friendship and Peace between the Mi'kmaq Nation and the British Crown, signed in 1752, and reaffirmed by the Supreme Court of Canada in 1985.  

Treaty Day marks the beginning of Mi'kmaq History month in Nova Scotia.  Dalhousie's Human Rights and Equity Services webpage will be providing updated information on community events throughout the month.
