About the Book

This work explores the emergence of the vocabulary of First Nations' self-government into the realm of public and parliamentary discourse in Canada during the decade of the 1970s. The emergence of the vocabulary is chronicled through a study of the testimony of First Nations and aboriginal witnesses before a series of Joint Committees on the Constitutions and the Commons Committee on Indian Affairs and Northern Development.
About the Author: Michael W. Posluns received his PhD from York University, in Toronto. He was the founding director of the parliamentary relations programme of the National Indian Brotherhood/Assembly of First Nations from 1976 to 1982.
