In honour of Treaty Recognition Week, students in the Grade 2/3 class at St. Mary Catholic School in Massey worked on creating Wampum belts with Lego blocks.

The belt portrayed in the picture is from the Treaty of Niagara, 1764.

The belt itself is a recording of that particular moment in our collective history, but more than that, it is a recognition that we are all treaty people, regardless of ancestry.
