Title: Aboriginals and Allies – We are All Treaty People
Location: Dublin United Church, 68 Suffolk St. W
Description: Fifteen years ago, the Aboriginal Rights Coalition worked with Indigenous elders and teachers to develop an interactive way of learning the history most Canadians are never taught.
