The National Archives of Canada recently acquired a set of documents concerning the Office of the Superintendent of Indian Affairs between the years 1762 and 1829. The documents contain information as mundane as a recipe for pickling beef to definitions of treaties signed with various Aboriginal tribes. Many of the letters deal with disagreements between tribes and whites over rights to land and of promises made.
For further information on the new acquisition or on the archive collection in general, contact:Jennifer Snoeks
