The Thatcher Government in Saskatchewan and the Revival of Metis Nationalism, 1964-71.
Pitsula, James M.
Great Plains Quarterly, v17 n3-4 p213-35 Sum-Fall 1997
From 1964 to 1971, Saskatchewan's Thatcher government pursued a policy of providing Metis and Indian job placements, supported by job training and housing in urban relocation centers. Based on economic integration of individuals into mainstream society, the government's plan appeared insufferably paternalistic as increasingly militant Metis leaders and organizations articulated their desires for self-determination.
