Treaty of Ni­a­gara, 1764

Kayak (Canada) - - FEATURE STORY -

This wampum belt was wo­ven in 1764. It cre­ated a spe­cial fam­ily re­la­tion­ship between the First Na­tions groups, known as con­fed­era­cies, from the Great Lakes re­gion, and the Bri­tish Crown. That re­la­tion­ship was sup­posed to mean that, as fam­ily, those in­volved could dis­agree but still have re­spect and love for each other. The Treaty of Ni­a­gara has been de­scribed as the true found­ing of what was to be­come Canada.
