Homework Help: List of Rights

Metis list of rights-1869

These were the older rights. And I don't understand many of them, please simplify for me.

That treaties be concluded and ratified between the Dominion Government and the several tribes of Indians in the Territory to ensure peace on the frontier.

That the English and French languages be common in the Legislature and Courts, and that all Public Documents and Acts of the Legislature be published in both languages.

That for the term of four years all Military, Civil and Municipal expenses be paid out of Dominion funds.

Okay so these rights don’t seem to be speaking about the Metis that much, the Metis Bill of Rights which were updated in 1884 talk more about the Metis, these ones don’t at all. So what do these list of rights address about the Metis? Because to me, they don’t address anything about them, they just talk about French and English languages.
