Excerpt
Excerpt: The colonization of the Indian Nations and their territories by the Anglo-Canadian settlers has resulted in the dispossession of the Indigenous Indian Nations of their territories and their domination by an alien society. The Indian Nations share a common legacy with the Third World of dispossession and foreign control of natural resources, colonization, underdevelopment and poverty. The Indian Nations in Upper North America, like the Third World, have been involved in a struggle to decolonize their relations with the settler governments and to secure a fair share of the lands that have been taken from them. The issues have come into focus in terms of Canadian independence negotiations with Britain and legislative initiatives to finally disperse the Indian Nations. Canada's constitutional and legislative initiatives are a lesson to other states with unresolved Indigenous Peoples' issues on how not to remove a colonial legacy of betrayal and bitterness.
