Treaties in Canada by Historica Canada"While the broad philosophy of treaties is generally similar (setting the terms for how to relate to each other), each treaty is a unique agreement with
unique circumstances. Treaties were created to define the respective rights of Indigenous nations and colonial governments. Though many treaties
pre-date Confederation, they are living documents (much like Canada’s Constitution) and their interpretation is continuously re-examined and debated
by Canadian and Indigenous lawmakers to this day. In addition, treaties continue to be negotiated. In 1982, when the Constitution Act was passed,
treaty rights were recognized and affirmed by Canada’s Constitution. The Aboriginal rights and title specified by the Constitution Act is the backdrop
to the ongoing legal battles that result from treaties being unfinished business and, at the same time, the highest law in the land. " -- p. 2
