Abstract
"In recent years, Indians have embarked on the arduous journey of casting off the colonial regime and creating new institutions intended to increase community power and self-sufficiency.

While fundamentally sympathetic to the goals of Indian activists, this book is no mere advocacy tract. It provides the requisite historical, demographic, and public opinion data that are necessary background to anyone seeking to understand the transition that Indian peoples are undertaking. It includes detailed treatment of such pivotal events as the James Bay and Northern Quebec Agreement, the Berger Inquiry into the Mackenzie Valley pipeline, the 1985 amendments to the Indian Act, and the drive for self-government.

Arduous Journey presents a comprehensive description and critical analysis of the situation Canadian Indians face on their difficult road to self-determination. This is complemented by a discussion of comparable processes undergone by aboriginal peoples in other countries."--Back cover.
