Royal Commission on Aboriginal Peoples Available
The Royal Commission on Aboriginal Peoples (1996) represented an attempt to describe the state of Canada’s Native Peoples circa the late 20th century.
A major undertaking, it eventually encompassed hundreds of documents, submissions and testimonies on the socioeconomic, cultural and political realities faced by Aboriginal Peoples across the country, in communities large and small.
This vast collection is now available online via federal government websites.
However, the Patrick Power Library has managed to bring it all together in one comprehensive, easily-navigated and accessible place.
You can find it HERE.
