The Indian Act: Protection, Control, or Assimilation?

by Russ Diabo

Prepared under the direction of AFN National Chief Ovide Mercredi in 1996, while I was AFN Indian Act Amendments Coordinator. Written by Peter Di Gangi and edited by me. It was written for Chiefs, Councils, Advisors and Peoples, but it is a good primer for anyone who wants to know about the Indian Act, which is still in force today for the majority of Indian Bands and Band Councils across Canada.
