Douglas Treaty Conference

E-mail Print

BACKGROUND NOTE: Douglas Treaty Conference May 10 and 11, Vancouver Island University, Nanaimo

Subject: Pre-Confederation Treaties of Vancouver Island Conference, Vancouver Island University, Nanaimo Campus, May 10 & 11, 2012.

Background: “We knew it was our land, we never had any other thought but that it was our land. We used to go out into the islands that were in our territory and fish for sockeye, humpbacks and spring salmon…Well like so many things the way of life became gradually changed. We lost the land somehow. One after another – land, fishing rights, hunting rights were legislated away.”
