Nation to nation : Aboriginal sovereignty and the future of Canada
Xwi7xwa Library, University of British Columbia

Engelstad, Diane.
Bird, John.
"As aboriginal self-government moves beyond mere rhetoric towards reality, this timely book - a dialogue of native and non-native voices on such issues as sovereignty or assimilation, specific claims policy, land stewardship, justice for First Nations, rebuilding community after the residential school experience and Oka, and women and sovereignty - serves as an invitation to all Canadians to learn to walk together towards a true healing of relationships." - back cover.
