Description

As Long As the Sun Shines and Water Flows: A Reader in Canadian Native Studies is a collection of eighteen papers that focus on First Nations history since 1763 and presents an overview of official Canadian Indian policy and its effects on the Indian, Inuit, and Métis peoples. Issues and themes covered include colonial Indian policy, constitutional developments, Indian treaties and policy, government decision-making and Native responses reflecting both persistence and change, and the broad issue of aboriginal and treaty rights. Particular topics include an assessment of the policies of Herman Merivale and Clifford Sifton; Land Cessions in Upper Canada, and The Location of the Boundaries of Treaty 3 Indian Reserves in Ontario; The Cypress Hills Massacre, Louis Riel and Aboriginal Rights; and The Inuit and the Constitutional Process: 1978-81. Although this collection is dated the essays remain important contributions to the literature on Native Studies.
