TRICK OR TREATY?

Trick or Treaty? A documentary

In recent years, we’ve seen an ever-increasing number of incidents with Canada’s First Nations as they’ve tried to present to both the government and people of Canada their understanding of the challenges and uneven opportunities within our modern society. From the ‘Highway of Tears’ to the blockade in Caledonia, calls for a Royal Commission into the disappearance of women and girls, to the question of pay for Tribal chiefs or residential schools, the issues continue to reverberate and always seem to start with the original Treaties signed on behalf of the Canadian people. Trick or Treaty? focuses our attention on Treaty 9, signed in 1905, and allows us to view the interpretations and results through a clear, unblinking lens. This will be an incredibly powerful, emotional and thought-provoking documentary.
