Treaties, 1923 - Mississauga Indians
nations in Ontario give up land rights to the federal government
in exchange for $25 each, and forthcoming funds of more than $230,000.
Most of the land covered by this treaty is meant to rectify 'blank
treaties,' non-existent treaties purportedly signed between the
British and the Aboriginals, or other unfair dealings during the
1700s and 1800s.
However, the Aboriginals also surrender their hunting, fishing
and trapping rights on all of the land covered by the treaty.
