Six Nations and the British Indian Department: A Century of Misplaced Trust, 1756-1867
October 29, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm$2.00
The Six Nations peoples had served as faithful allies of the British Crown during the Seven Years War, The American Revolutionary War and the War of 1812; nevertheless, the actions of the British Indian Department lead to the loss of much of their lands and nearly destroyed their rich cultural heritage.
This illustrated talk will trace the tragic story of this misplaced trust.
Any proceeds from this event will be used to increase the Library’s Indigenous book collection.
