do not know their own history.”

Anishinaabe

Earth Lodge Keeper Allen Sutherland provided Anishinaabeg and Canadian history to the ACC/FNT2T Applied Carpentry class.

The students have learned that before contact with the newcomers, the First Nations of North America were self-sustaining societies with complex social, economic, and political structures. A Timeline provides a graphic representation of the achievements, conflicts, high points, and low points of a complex and turbulent history. A Timeline helps students understand that First Nations peoples are strong and resilient, that the history of First Nations peoples is as old as the land itself, and that the struggle of First Nations people for their very survival, as well as for the protection and preservation of rights and resources, culture and language go back to time immemorial and continues to this day. It is powerfully represented on a Timeline. It should be noted that many timelines chronicle the events in First Nations history or the relationships over time between First Nations.

Allen Sutherland (White Spotted Horse) creator of the Canadian Indigenous Historical Timeline says:

“The shared history between Indigenous peoples and European settlers is one of cultural disruption and missed opportunities. Generations of Indigenous peoples experienced profound, unsought, and irreversible changes in their cultural and family life as a result of colonization. Many First Nations are working to change the cycles of abuse, the social and economic disruption, the loss of languages and the assimilation and lost of their cultures and identity.”

Anishinaabe today are building bridges of reconciliation and working to create educational communities where their children are respected, and their cultures are reflected and appreciated in Canadian society. First Nations Treaty 2 Territory with the Earth Lodge are rebuilding their Anishinaabeg Identity, Cultures, Wellness, Nationhood and a strong hope to reconcile the recent past and moving forward into the future. However, many challenges still exist today. Lifelong Learning such as knowing our Anishinaabeg history is a key to this progressive and positive change.
