This book is an excellent introduction to some of the history and issues around Canada's Indian Act. The writing is clear, engaging, and well-organized, so despite the weighty topic I blew through it in 3 days, and I'm a mom who works full time.
This is obviously a book written for those who want to take action; all the information is immediately useful and provides good talking points. And, don't skip the appendices! They include all 94 of the TRC's recommendations, and some very illuminating quotes from government officials involved in the creation and administration of the Indian Act. Highly recommended for anyone hoping to advocate for Indigenous rights.
