The Indian Act: What to do with it

If you want to understand the hopes and aspirations of Indigenous nations, at present circumscribed by the Indian Act, take the time to listen to this revealing episode of The Agenda.

The Agenda with Steve Paikin:

The Agenda discusses what should be done about the archaic legislation.
