If you live in Canada, and want to learn how Native communities and Settlers will move forward together, to our mutual benefit. Hint: hold policy makers accountable. Why do the successive governments of Canada continue to defy their own commissions, supreme court, and constitution? It illustrates the heart of the problem, though, doesn't it.

This is an important book to read for anyone who wants to understand First Nations land rights and title. It is written in a personal and accessible way, by someone who has been a grass roots indigenous activist. It is another indictment of colonial style mentality and policies, but Arthur Manuel's perseverance and that of others leaves one with some optimism.
