All Lakehead University Libraries on the Thunder Bay campus (Chancellor Paterson, Education, and Law) and the Orillia campus (Harvie Legacy and Education Library), will set up displays in honour of Treaties Recognition Week which is being held November 1 to 7, 2021.
It was introduced in Ontario in 2016 as the Treaties Recognition Week Act. The purpose of this week is to honour the importance of treaties and to build an awareness and understanding of their significance.
Lakehead's libraries offer many treaty resources and the unique offerings of each library will be featured. The library displays will include print resources pertaining to Indigenous history, treaties in Canada, elementary and secondary teaching resources and provide information about online resources that are available.
Additional opportunities for involvement in related events and activities are listed on the provincial Treaties Recognition Week website. We welcome you to drop by each library to review the wide range of resources available.
