This research provides an understanding of Treaty Four 1874 through an Anishinaabe philosophy using Anishinaabe (Ojibway) research methods. Prior research conducted has been done by primarily non-Anishinaabeg, therefore, this research will add literature regarding Chief Paskwa’s pictograph from an Anishinaabe voice while following traditional protocols. Including Anishinaabe voice when revisiting history is crucial, especially when the history is deeply connected to who you as a human-being in todays society. The research conducted and the knowledge shared will benefit the community of Pasqua First Nation and other Treaty Four bands. It can be used as a teaching tool to introduce Treaty Four 1874 from Anishinaabe (Indigenous People) philosophy. Utilizing Anishinaabeg methodologies and research methods will ground this research back to its roots Completing this research will empower future generations to look deeper into the Treaty Agreements to advocate and exercise their Treaty Rights as Anishinaabeg.
