Description

Beyond Blood: Rethinking Indigenous Identity is based on Mi'kmaw lawyer Pamela Palmater's 2009 thesis about the role of the Indian Act in determination of Indian status in terms of current Indigenous understandings of identity and self-government. She provides an overview of the federal legislation that defined Indian status and non-status; Aboriginal Identity in a Liberal Democracy; Indian Act Inequality; Charter Equality; Remedying Inequality for Non-Status Indians; Band Membership vs. Self-Government Citizenship; and Rethinking Indigenous Identity and Belonging. With forewords Chiefs Bill Montour, Candace Paul, Lawrence Paul, and Isadore Day, the book presents the most recent analysis of the legal and moral issues of First Nations identity making it a must-read for anyone interested in understanding Aboriginal issues and justice.
