Description

This volume features differing views of past, present, and possible future roles for Aboriginal people in the Canadian political and electoral system. The studies address the issues facing Aboriginal people and the efforts to increase their involvement in the federal electoral system.

Robert Milen examines the development of Aboriginal political consciousness since the 1970s, with attention to recent constitutional and electoral initiatives and aspirations.

Augie Fleras’ study considers the New Zealand system of guaranteed representation for the Maori and suggests how Canada might follow this example.

Valerie Alia studies how the media deal with Aboriginal issues, basing her recommendations on interviews with Aboriginal people who offered her their views.

Roger Gibbins critiques the idea of guaranteed Aboriginal representation in the House of Commons.
