First published in 1880 and reprinted here in its original format, THE TREATIES OF CANADA is the report by Treaty Commissioner and Lieutenant-Governor Alexander Morris to the Earl of Dufferin about the negotiations of Treaties One to Seven with the Indians. The book contains the entire text of those treaties, a recounting of the events of the treaty negotiations, and fascinating narrative reports of speeches made by both Indian and Crown representatives. As a primary document, it reveals the drama of history and provides valuable insights into the context and intent of these treaties. Any serious discussion of treaty issues today should include a read of Morris's text.

Alexander Morris was appointed chief justice of Manitoba in 1872, became Lieutenant-Governor of Manitoba (1873-78) and Lieuenant-Governor of the North-West Territories (1872-76). His greatest passion was Indian affairs and he played a key role in negotiating these treaties.
