Visions of the Heart provides a rich, in-depth study of contemporary issues facing Aboriginal peoples. Its purpose is to examine critically both past and present sources of oppression in Canadian Aboriginal life and to explore ways in which Aboriginal people can continue to realize their spiritual and material aspirations.

This fully revised second edition updates topics such as the evolution of Aboriginal leadership, Aboriginal - state relations, the concerns of Aboriginal women in Canadian society, victimization in the criminal justice system and demographic trends of Aboriginal peoples. It also discusses the following new topics:

  • Aboriginal self-government in Canada (the cases of Nunavut and the Alberta Metis)
  • Aboriginal youth and
  • the Lubicon First Nation Coalition.
It also includes a full text of Treaty Six and an abridged version of the Nisga'a Final Agreement.

This unique, personal collection of writings by well-respected Aboriginal authors is essential to those teaching Aboriginal Studies in universities and colleges across Canada.
