[Metis Study Tour Report.]
Human Resources Development Authority, Edmonton (Alberta).
A 14-day tour by field workers was designed to obtain a minimum of information for purposes of policy making by the Indian Association of Alberta. The principal Metis centers in the Province of Alberta were visited, and interviews were conducted in Edmonton with government and private agencies. Fact and opinion are intermingled throughout this presentation, which points out the serious problems currently affecting the Metis community in Alberta. Observations of the recording secretaries of the tour are presented on community development programs, culture, education, health, housing, jobs, land, law, Metis attitude, organization, welfare, white attitude, alcoholism, human resources, extension services, cooperative services, human rights, manpower, and rehabilitation. On the basis of 14 days of intense observation and discussion, 22 recommendations were formulated and are presented in the document. The appendix is a brief report presented by a university student relevant to education of Natives at the grade school, high school, and university levels.
