The University of Manitoba will welcome a national research lecture series to the province this afternoon.
“We are all Treaty People: Accepting the Queen’s Hand” is a lecture put on by the Royal Society of Canada (RSC) Governor General and will explore the different expectations and understandings that Aboriginal people and non-Natives had of the numbered treaties that were negotiated in the West between 1871 and 1877.
Canada Research Chair James R. Miller will preside over the lecture, taking place in Room 220 of University Centre on the U of M’s Fort Garry Campus.
The lecture is fourth in a series of six lectures presented across Canada.
Admission is free and the lecture will begin at 2:30 p.m.
