The Royal Proclamation of 1763 is on display this fall at the Canadian Museum of Civilization in Gatineau, Quebec. The showing is in recognition of the 250th anniversary of this treaty.

This foundational declaration set a relationship in motion between the British Crown and “…the several Nations or Tribes of Indians with whom We are connected, and who live under our Protection.”

Although it was first entered into two and a half centuries ago, the agreement stands today as part of the “crown” Canadian Constitution Act of 1982.

This is one of the first documents from the perspective of British allies that articulates the foundational relationship between the Crown and the governments of indigenous nations that existed here in North America prior to the arrival of foreign explorers and missionaries.

The show also shares the Treaty of Peace and Friendship with Sir William Johnson and the Hurons.

The pieces are on display until October 27, 2013. For directions see the museum’s website www.civilization.ca
