November 1st to the 7th marks Treaties Recognition Week which recognizes the importance of treaties and aims to increase the awareness of the treaty relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous communities in Ontario. The Clarence-Rockland Public Library understands the importance of these treaties and wants to help others in our community understand as well.
We have therefore created an educational session on Tuesday, November 2nd from 3:30 to 4:30 PM at the Rockland branch. Our guests will be Pierrette and Archie Martin who have travelled across Quebec, Ontario and New Brunswick promoting First Nations and Métis culture, traditions and spirituality. Using animation, stories and legends of their people they will teach us the importance of treaties as well as bring artifacts, furs, historic weaponry, clay pipes, corn pipes and so much more to help make the learning a hands-on experience. We invite everyone to join us for this very special, very important event.
