“...whether they took treaty or not, they were subject to the laws of the Dominion.”

— REPORT OF THE COMMISSIONER FOR TREATY No. 11 H. A. CONROY

  • Matthew James Weigel University of Alberta

Abstract

A selection of poems from a chapbook research creation regarding the mystery of the printing and distribution of the Treaty 6 parchment. Treaty 6 was signed in 1876 with the promise of parchment copies to be delivered to the signatories the following year. This delivery did not occur. A copy of the parchment with unknown provenance is housed in Bruce Peel Special Collections at the University of Alberta. These poems are part of an ongoing research project examining the implications of one-sided document access in a nation-to-nation agreement.
