Detailed Treaty Eight Territory Flag Product Description
First negotiated in late June 1899, Treaty 8 embraced an area in northwestern Canada of some 840,000 square kilometres -- more than three and a half times the size of Great Britain. At the time, it was not only the largest land settlement undertaken by the Canadian government with First Nations, but also the first to recognize that the "aboriginal title" of Indians and Métis are co-existent.
Treaty 8 was signed between Queen Victoria and various First Nations at Lesser Slave Lake, including the Woodland, Cree, Dunne-za (or Beaver) and the Denesuline (Chipewyan) in Northern Alberta and those in Northeastern British Columbia, Northwestern Saskatchewan and Southern Northwest Territories.
Although the original treaty is now a century old, its impact on the daily lives of First Nations and Métis peoples is no less significant than on the day it was first signed. Treaty 8 is very much a living document. It provides the basis for continuing relations between Natives of the Athabasca and the rest of Canada
Perfect to fly to honour the Treaty Number Eight Territory on which you stand. Great for Schools, Government organizations etc. Great for the classroom as a teaching aid.
