Offering a sympathetic but detached portrait of Canada's native people, Reservations are for Indians has become a classic.
Combining the skills of a novelist with those of an accomplished journalist, Heather Robertson captures the vicious circle of dependence created by government policies which ensnares aboriginal Canadians. Her account combines a description of life in four reserve communities with a history of government policies and programs, describing the circumstances which yielded a generation of native leaders who demand a new place in Canada's political and constitutional structure.
For this edition, Heather Robertson has written a preface describing how she came to write the book, the response to it when it was first published, and how she sees it in the context of the issues regarding aboriginal rights facing Canadians today.
