Heather Sanguins, Geography & Environmental Studies Supervisor: Jody F. Decker Research First Nations' Post-Treaty Mobility in Ontario and the Near North, 1829 - 1865 Exploring place and mobility helps us understand the cyclical, iterative land use and 'dwelling' of First Nation Peoples and, through that understanding, to identify the impacts both of the relocation and emplacement of First Nation Peoples and of the 'mobility' of land, that is, the dynamic status of different peoples' land tenures and conceptions of 'land.' Increasing our understanding of place and mobility is important respecting not only historical relocation, but also contemporary relocation of First Nations and other peoples prompted, for example, by development and climate change.
