The Office of the Treaty Commissioner is reinvigorating the Treaty Learning Network, a central hub for educators and education staff to access training, cultural, and education supports and resource materials about the Treaties.

“The office saw a need for more training for teachers, and heard from many school divisions and tribal councils across the province that they were hoping for more support in terms of resources, training and networking,” said Amy Seesequasis, Director of Public Education.

The network team is working on enhancing the Teaching Treaties in the Classroom training, updating and adding resources to the Treaty Kit, and creating a network of resource people and trained educators to provide a place for educators to find support in their journey teaching this meaningful information.

The network is important because Treaties are the building blocks of the country, said Seesequasis.

“Through the Treaty Learning Network, we hope to provide educators and educational staff an opportunity to learn, in a safe space, about the history of numbered Treaties. Through this network, they will find understanding and pride in their Treaty identity and the roles and responsibilities associated,” she said.

Teachers and educators looking to get involved can contract the Treaty Learning Coordinator, Charmaine Gardiner, cgardiner@otc.ca, to learn more.
