Rate this:

First published in 1880 and reprinted here in its original format, The Treaties of Canada is the report by Treaty Commissioner and Lieutenant-Governor Alexander Morris to the Earl of Dufferin about the negotiations of Treaties One to Seven with the Indians.

The book contains the entire text of those treaties, a recounting of the events of the treaty negotiations, and fascinating narrative reports of speeches made by both Indian and Crown representatives.

As a primary document, it reveals the drama of history and provides valuable insights into the context and intent of these treaties. Any serious discussion of treaty issues today should include a read of Morris's text.
