Indian Chiefs of Alberta.
The Indian Chiefs of Alberta prepared this document in response to the Canadian government's "White Paper on Indians." Basically the White Paper was an attempt to transfer ownership of the land to individual Indians and the management of Indian Affairs from the federal to the provincial governments. In the present paper, the Indian Chiefs of Alberta, representing the Treaty Indians, set forth their case for the treaty rights granted them and ask that the federal government continue to recognize the treaties. The chiefs suggest programs in economics, health, and education that would aid in the fulfillment of the federal government's responsibilities. (LS)
