Did you know the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation is located right here in Winnipeg, at U of M? It’s a public space with public resources where you can learn more about the Commission—all the documents gather by the TRC are housed here for posterity, education, and so survivors have access to their own history.
The Treaty Relations Commission of Manitoba is a partnership between the Assembly of Manitoba Chiefs (AMC) and Canada with a mandate to strengthen, rebuild and enhance the Treaty relationship and mutual respect as envisaged by the Treaty Parties. They’ll have a booth at the Forks this Saturday, and though they’ll be closed on June 21, on any other business day you can visit their learning centre, where you can immerse yourself in all things Treaty. (And if you haven’t read Treaty One, the Treaty of which Winnipeg is a part—here it is).
