1. What is the purpose of teaching Treaty Ed (specifically) or First Nations, Metis, and Inuit (FNMI) Content and Perspectives (generally) where there are few or no First Nations, Metis, Inuit peoples?
The aboriginal population in your school should not effect how much treaty education is present inside your classroom. During my high school experience I remember hearing the same information about First Nations, Metis, and Inuit content and perspectives. It was not until being apart of the faculty of education where I started to learning new First Nations, Metis, and Inuit content and perspectives which helped me open my eyes to a new way of learning making it very important for students in high school to have these opportunities and not have to wait until university for these learnings.
2. What does it mean for your understanding of curriculum that “We are all treaty people”?
Saying we are all treaty people makes sense to me as we all live on treaty 4 land and it is sad that many people do not know this. This phrase is not a one sided statement as a treaty has to have two sides coming together for a common agreement.
