"Based on a viral article, 21 Things You May Not Know About the Indian Act is the essential guide to understanding the legal document and its repercussion on generations of Indigenous peoples, written by a leading cultural sensitivity trainer. The Indian Act, after 141 years, continues to shape, control, and constrain the lives and opportunities of Indigenous peoples, and is at the root of many lasting stereotypes. Bob Joseph's book comes at a key time in the reconciliation process, when awareness from both Indigenous and non-Indigenous communities is at a crescendo. Joseph explains how Indigenous peoples can step out from under the Indian Act and return to self-government, self-determination, and self-reliance-and why doing so would result in a better country for every Canadian. He dissects the complex issues around truth and reconciliation, and clearly demonstrates why learning about the Indian Act's cruel, enduring legacy is essential for the country to move toward true reconciliation."--… (mais)

Very approachable introduction to The Indian Act. ( )

Personally, I didn't learn much about the Indian Act that I didn't already know. Which isn't a bad thing...there should be more Canadians who understand the extent of Colonialism, as well as its ongoing effects. The examples and explanations of various Indian Act provisions is well written and an excellent reference.

The parts of the book I gained the most from dealt with challenges in dismantling the Indian Act. I also got a better understanding of why some First Nations are leery of doing so. I enjoyed the chronology of residential schools and finally read the Calls to Action of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.

A very important book! ( )

It sounds like it would also be good for people like me, European and without a word in their own language that isn't outdated that describes people whose ancestors were fucked over and whose descenders still are.

This small book is an important read for descendants of settlers in Canada. It explains the history of cultural conflict where one culture believes itself to be superior to the other, is determined to eradicate any trace of the other culture, and in fact, in many cases eradicate not just the culture, but the people themselves.

I read this book in a discussion group and I would recommend others do the same. It leads to some passionate discussion, self-revelation and understanding of present inequities and injustices. ( )

When the present does not recognize the wrongs of the past, the future takes its revenge. For that reason, we must never, never turn away from the opportunity of confronting history together -- the opportunity to right a historical wrong. -- Governor Genera Michaelle Jean at relaunch of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada, October 2009
It is readily acknowledged that Indian children lose their natural resistance to illness by habituating so closely in the residential schools and that they die at a much higher rate than in their villages. But this alone does not justify a change in the policy of the Department, which is geared towards a final solution of our Indian Problem. -- Duncan Campbell Scott, Deputy Superintendent of Indian Affairs, 1910
