“The case studies used in the paper look at American reservations, but they have obvious application in Canada.

About one quarter of reserves are located within or contiguous to the boundaries of urban areas.

Having resisted overt assimilation and initiating a process of restoring identity, Aboriginal cultures face new challenges, such as the pervasive reality of information and communications technologies (ICT).

If used effectively and harnessed appropriately, ICT can be a valuable tool to propel forward their process of cultural renewal."

There are lessons to be learned from both within Canada and outside as to what can be done to alleviate poverty and stimulate economic growth.
