Treaty 9 Presentation.

Storyboard Text

  • Have you noticed the lack of beavers in our area recently?
  • Yes. Its the Hudson Bay Company trappers. We must do something.
  • The trappers have caught more beavers by the bay today.
  • How delightful
  • Elder, there is an issue at hand. The beaver population is growing short due to the trappers in the area.
  • Then we shall request a treaty so the benefits are mutual.
  • In this scene, two indigenous people are discussing about the lack of beavers in the area.
  • Deal.
  • We get to own more land to hunt by making you reserves, and in return we pay you.
  • We as a nation require reparations be made!
  • In this slide, two British trappers are talking about how today was a success in terms of capturing beavers.
  • Very well. Sorry!
  • One of the people in the village that noticed the decreasing populations of beavers goes to inform the Elder of the tribe. The Elder's decision is to propose a treaty.
  • This illustrates the negotiation and signing of Treaty 9.
  • This represents the indigenous nation of Canada demanding amends for the unfairness of the Treaty, and how some nations did not receive the reserves of land they were promised.
  • Everybody is happy!
