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.

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

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.
