A wall hanging showing the various treaties across Canada between Indigenous Nations and the Federal Government. The piece is made of baltic birch wood. Each piece hand painted with a water-based stain and finished with a furniture grade lacquer. Note that this is a very similar to the treaty puzzle except that 1) the pieces are glued in, 2) there are no nubs on the pieces, and 3) there is a bracket on the back to hang on the wall.
Dimensions: 12" x 16" x 3/8"
The Truth and Reconciliation findings (2015) awakened me to the harmful actions of Canada to Indigenous peoples and the need to reconcile this past and today’s relationships. As a small action towards reconciliation, I’ve built this puzzle so that my children, and hopefully many more children, can learn about one aspect of the history between indigenous and non-indigenous people. One hundred percent of all the profits ($15 on each map) from selling these puzzles will be donated to Indspire, an Indigenous-led organization that promotes Indigenous education in Canada.
