Description

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. 

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Essentially Canadian - Must Read.

I took up this audiobook as part of my responsibility as a Canadian and it was well worth the listen and gives me a much better perspective on our future and our collective journey of reconciliation. Marcel

Very Important <br />

This audiobook is very important to anyone wanting a look at Canada's Indian Act and the atrocities that came from it. The end is very good with the ideas of how to overcome this dark point in Canada's history.

Must Listen for Canadians

Well read piece that includes vital information the average person may not understand or be aware of as it relates to the Indian Act.

Would be valuable for a mature teenager as well.

Must Read For Every Canadian

This is a must-read for anyone who is not intimately aware of the Indian Act, it is incredibly eye-opening. It is also presented in such a way that it is easy to understand and lets you think about the information. Highly recommend.

AN INFORMATIVE, INSIGHTFUL, AND IMPORTANT BOOK!

This is a great starting point for anyone who wants to understand the federal government's role in embedding systemic racism in indigenous policy in Canada. It is a stark reminder of the dangers of perpetuating false narratives in our society and how that leads to oppression and disenfranchisement. it also serves as a good argument 4 self-governance and self-determination for indigenous people.

A version of history you did not learn in school.

Naration was on point with a good tone for what is a fairly. Gives better understanding of how Canadia's institutions lead to current aboriginal condition. Covers the various iterations of the Indian act on subjects like boarding schools, intoxicants, land and status.

In my opinion most canadians and Canada as a whole would benefit from listening/reading this.

Great content but voice is monotone

This book is essential reading for all those hoping to better understand the relationship between Indigenous Peoples and Canada. It is full of insightful information and a good amount of elaboration on the 21 ideas that had started as a blog post. My problem with the audiobook specifically is the narration. I found Bob Joseph sounded very lackadaisical throughout his reading, which made the story itself sound unconvincing despite the subject matter. I found myself tuning his voice out entirely or nodding off on several occasions while trying to listen, before giving up entirely. I’ll pick the physical book up instead to finish it.
