We close the 26th Annual Fall Edition of the Writers Festival with a talk by Bob Joseph, author of the invaluable bestseller, 21 Things You May Not Know About the Indian Act.

 

Since its creation in 1876, the Indian Act has shaped, controlled, and constrained the lives and opportunities of Indigenous Peoples, and is at the root of many enduring stereotypes. Learning about the Indian Act's cruel, enduring legacy is essential for the country to move toward true reconciliation.

 

Don’t miss this talk on how Indigenous Peoples can step out from under the Indian Act and return to self-government, self-determination, and self-reliance - and why doing so would result in a better country for every Canadian.

 

Books are available from our friends at Perfect Books.
