WDM Virtual Coffee Club "Spirit and Intent of Treaties 1 through 7"

Grab a cup of coffee and settle in as we explore the WDM collection while you connect and reflect with others on experiences from the past and/or youth.

Sessions will take place via Zoom. You can register for one or for them all! There will be time for questions after the presentation. Each session will take place from 10:00 – 11:00 am unless otherwise indicated. Dates and topics are listed below.

Join us for a time of visiting and learning. There is no cost to attend but pre-registration is required. Registration closes at 8:30 am on the day of the Virtual Coffee Club.


Guest speaker: Dr. Sheldon Krasowski, Director of Research and Archives, Office of the Treaty Commissioner
Through his presentation, Dr. Krasowski will share why the spirit and intent of treaties 1 through 7 is critical to understanding the complicated relationship between the Crown and First Nations people. We will learn how treaties are more than written documents and that to fully understand the context of treaties, one must understand what the spirit was and what the intentions were at the time of treaty-making. The spirit and intent refers to the sacredness of the treaties, which was not recorded in written form.

Other upcoming sessions:
- Wapaha Sk̄a Oyate: Living Our Culture, Sharing our Community at Pion-Era, 1955 – 69 – November 15, with guest speaker: Dr. Elizabeth Scott, WDM Curator
- Holiday Traditions – December 20
