Four Treaty Education K-12 goals have been identified as the basis for building understanding and nurturing appreciation. These goals are based upon the Treaty Essential Learnings (2006) and are intended to be addressed through various subject areas. These goals are:
• Treaty Relationships;
• Spirit and Intent of Treaties;
• Historical Context of Treaties, and
• Treaty Promises and Provisions.
While they are presented separately, the goals for Treaty Education can best be understood when considered as parts of a whole, integrated into other curriculum in meaningful ways. The outcomes and indicators at each grade level are designed to engage learners on a journey of inquiry and discovery. When meaningfully and thoughtfully incorporated into subject areas, Treaty Education moves beyond an idea to become actualized as a belief that benefits all learners.
