This lecture in Halifax/Sackville, the first in a series by Dr. James Miller, FRSC, of the University of Saskatchewan, explains how early commercial compacts and peace and friendship treaties in eastern Canada formed the foundation of a lengthy tradition of treaty-making between Aboriginal peoples and the Crown that unfolded across the country over four centuries.
