Concerns of Indians in British Columbia. Theme: "Equal Opportunity in Our Land."
Indian-Eskimo Association of Canada, Toronto (Ontario).
The first conference (1966) of the Canadian Indian-Eskimo Association was designed to provide opportunities for Indians and Eskimos to express their views publicly so that Canadians might better understand the Indian problems. In Part I of the document, a report is given on the conference symposium entitled "Equal Opportunity in Our Land," along with reprints of 2 addresses: one about the government of British Columbia and the opportunities and problems of its Indian citizens where the incorporation of reserves as full municipalities is discussed, and the other about legal problems, rights, and responsibilities of the Indian. Part II presents reports on the 4 discussion groups, which dealt with (1) housing, education, health, and welfare; (2) industry and development; (3) Indians and the law; and (4) communication. Concluding comments on the conference point out the need for action and youth involvement within organizations. (AN)
