Dr. Adam Gaudry (Assistant Professor, University of Saskatchewan) — "The
people who owned the North-West Territories:" Respect, nationhood, and the
western origins of the Métis people

*Wednesday, February 3rd, 6:30pm-8:30pm, Halifax Central Library*

Have you ever wondered who the Métis people are? Did the Crown sign
treaties with the Métis? What is the difference between the Métis as a
people, and métis as a term denoting mixed-racedness?

Come on out to this event, which promises to be thought-provoking and

Dr. Adam Gaudry's research explores nineteenth-century Métis political
thought, the formation of a Métis treaty-relationship with Canada in 1870,
and the subsequent non-implementation of that agreement. This project
argues the existence of a "Manitoba treaty" between the Métis people and
Canada necessitates the maintenance of a respectful and bilateral political
relationship between the treaty partners.
