Blind Spots: An Examination of the Federal Government's Response to the Report of the Royal Commission on Aboriginal Peoples
This book examines what has happened since the release of the Royal Commission's report, offering the perspectives of authors who scrutinize how the federal government has, or has not, implemented the recommendations of the commission. A number of topcis are explored in this examination including colonialism, assimilationist policies, economic disparity, racism, treaty rights, Aboriginal self-determination and others. This collection of essays addresses aspects of the relationship in which little has improved, areas in which "uneven progress" has been made, as well as where the federal government has failed entirely to respond to the Royal Commission's recommendations. One author even calls into question the genesis of the commission itself and several chapters explore the international dimensions of Aboriginal title, land rights and human rights.
