Aboriginal Self-Government in Canada: Current Trends and Issues. Purich's Aboriginal Issues Series.
Hylton, John H., Ed.
This book contains 13 chapters analyzing important practical issues that must be addressed as Aboriginal self-government becomes fully operational in Canada. These issues are related to social problems and policies, criminal justice, community services, education, employment and job training, finance, the land base of government, women's rights and concerns, and Metis political structures. Of particular educational interest are chapters examining Aboriginal education in Australia, four models applicable to development of Aboriginal postsecondary education, and an Aboriginal training and employment initiative in which decisions are made by community boards. Chapters are: "Aboriginal Peoples and Euro-Canadians: Two World Views" (Murray Sinclair); "The Case for Aboriginal Self-Government: A Social Policy Perspective" (John H. Hylton); "Aboriginal Self-Government: Implications of the Australian Experience" (John Ekstedt); "Community Healing and Aboriginal Self-Government: Is the Circle Closing?" (John D. O'Neil, Brian D. Postl); "Education for Self-Determination" (Eber Hampton, Steven Wolfson); "Self-Government and Criminal Justice: Issues and Realities" (Carol La Prairie); "Pathways to Success: Aboriginal Decision-Making in Employment and Training" (Tina Eberts); "The Financing of Aboriginal Self-Government" (Allan M. Maslove, Carolyn Dittburner); "The Geographies of Aboriginal Self-Government" (Evelyn J. Peters); "Aboriginal Women and Self-Government" (Margaret A. Jackson); "Aboriginal Self-Government and the Metis Nation" (Clem Chartier); "Attitudes toward Aboriginal Peoples and Aboriginal Self-Government in Canada" (J. W. Berry, M. Wells); and "Future Prospects for Aboriginal Self-Government in Canada" (John H. Hylton). Contains references in each chapter, an index, and contributor profiles. (SV)
