Defining Relationships Between Peoples.
"This documentary looks at the various treaties the Michi Saagiig (Mississauga) participated in between 1781 and 1923. There are 46 treaties that cover the lands of Ontario, eighteen of which include the Michi Saagiig. Explore the early history of the initial agreements made between the Crown (and later Canada) and the Michi Saagiig. Learn about the generosity and kindness of a nation of indigenous people who based these political relationsihps upon concepts of balance, harmony, and the sharing of lands and resources in the spirit of reciprocity. The Michi Saagiig have always upheld the integrity and responsibilities of the treaties as living breathing agreements - the most sacred of convenants betwen nations. Colonial governments, and later their federal and provincial counterparts did not always abide by the directions as set out by these treaties. The residual impacts from the controversial Williams Treaties, which covers approximately 13 million acres of present day Ontario, are still being felt today. In Ontasrio, we are all treaty peoples...This documentary reminds us all about what that means." -- container.
