About this webinar: This presentation, based on the written record, will examine the first of Canada's western treaties, made at Lower Fort Gary in 1871. We will look at the expectations of both parties at the treaty and will discuss the implications for First Nations of the introduction and administration of the Indian Act in the west in 1876.
