Course Description

This course focuses on the history of treaty making between Indigenous peoples and European settler-colonial governments from the Royal Proclamation of 1763 to the present. How do these nation-to-nation agreements fit within a much longer history of Indigenous treaty making and diplomacy? In what ways did settler governments and Indigenous peoples interpret these treaties differently? How did treaty making and the interpretation of treaties change over time? And what role can historians play in the modern interpretation of historical treaties? This course explores these and other questions.
