21 Things You May Not Know About the Indian Act: Helping Canadians Make Reconciliation with Indigenous Peoples a Reality – Bob Joseph

Thoughts: Having read this, I have a better sense of what the Canadian Indian Act is and how it has been changed over time. I came across a few facts I hadn’t expected (mostly about the Royal Proclamation), but there wasn’t much that really surprised me. Worth reading, but not a highlight.

(The notes below are not a summary of the book, but rather raw notes - whatever I thought, at the time, might be worth remembering.)
