Unfinished Dreams: Community Healing and the Reality of Aboriginal Self-Government examines First Nations self-government issues relating to health care, justice and politics. Warry argues that self-government can be realized when individuals are secure in their cultural identity and can contribute to their communities. Research from the Royal Commission on Aboriginal Peoples (RCAP), case studies, and Warry's personal research among Nishnawbe communities are used to examine these critical issues facing Aboriginal communities. He maintains that holistic solutions are required for community healing. Topics include mental health issues, suicide, family and community health, abuse, violence, traditional medicine, prevention, treatment and justice.
