The Halifax Brewery Market is located on unceded Mi’kmaq territory. This territory is covered by the Peace and Friendship Treaties which Mi’kmaq and Wolastoqiyik people first signed with the British Crown in 1725. The treaties did not deal with surrender of lands and resources but in fact recognized Mi’kmaq and Wolastoqiyik title and established the rules for what was to be an ongoing relationship between nations.
