A Survey of the Contemporary Indians of Canada: Economic, Political, Educational Needs and Policies. Volume II.
Tremblay, M. A.; And Others
Two sets of issues are discussed in this volume of the survey. These issues are related to the provision and adequacy of schools for the Indian child and adult, and to leadership, organization and direction of reserves. Although mindful of the wider setting of culture and community in which these issues find their definition, they are abstracted from that setting for discussion. Primary topics include an analysis of competitive ideologies; the administrative and educational structures of Indian schools; education of the Indian child; and a philosophy of Indian education (general guidelines). The background of formal organization and decision-making in Indian communities, general aspects of band councils (local government bodies involving residents on band-controlled land), patterns and trends in band council elections, and the decision-making process are also discussed. An index is included to aid the reader. (SW)
