148th Anniversary of Treaty #3

October 3rd is the 148th anniversary of Treaty #3. Our Treaty’s origin dates back to 1873 when the Ojibwe peoples and the Government of Canada signed Treaty #3, which provided the federal government access to the Saulteaux land in present-day northwestern Ontario and eastern Manitobain exchange for various goods and Indigenous rights to hunting, fishing and natural resources on reserve lands. The terms and text of Treaty #3 set precedents for the eight Numbered Treaties that followed.
