Independent Student Learning Activity
Robert Houle: Make a Creative Response to a Treaty Text
Grades 7 to 12
Using Robert Houle’s art as a starting point, this independent activity will examine treaty texts and decolonization in art. In this activity, students will research a treaty that is relevant to their local community and create an artwork to demonstrate their reflections on their personal connections to the treaty. Students will need previous experience in analyzing a variety of primary and secondary sources and synthesizing this knowledge.
- Creative responses to historical events and treaties
- Indigenous experiences of major historical events
