Archival photos from around the original signing of Treaty 8 in 1899. Notice the distinct lack of headdresses? This one shows Chief Keenooshayo (kinosêw) in 1904. More archival pictures here. I like to show these kinds of images to people who imagine the Treaty signings with all war-bonneted natives on one side and slick Europeans in suits on the other. The truth was, First Nations had a mix of clothing back then and European clothes were not uncommon. Sort of turns assumptions on their head.
Settlers can’t even.
