Opportunities and Challenges Urban Environments Represent for Urban Aboriginal Economic Development [Urban Aboriginal Economic Development, UAED]

Publisher: 
Urban Aboriginal Economic Development (UAED)
Year of publication: 
2009

"This paper addresses the challenges and opportunities urban environments represent for urban Aboriginal economic development. About one quarter of reserves are located within or contiguous to the boundaries of urban areas. Reserve residents experience different legal regimes and government structures than most urban Aboriginal residents, and they are not the focus here. Instead, the focus is on urban Aboriginal people living off reserves in urban areas. The paper begins with some background material that presents the framework for organizing the analysis.

Economic Development and Innu Settlement: The Establishment of Sheshatshit [Canadian Journal of Native Studies, CJNS]

Publisher: 
Canadian Journal of Native Studies (CJNS)

"This paper documents the circumstances surrounding the comparatively recent settlement of the nomadic Inn of Labrador in a central community. State and health officials and agents of the church at the time initiated programs that focused on economic rehabilitation, formal education and health concerns which they felt would assist in integrating Innu into Canadian industrial society. Ultimately Innut had little choice but to comply with the wishes of these officials and settle when confronted with the difficulties of pursuing traditional practices."

AFM 6 - Aboriginal History & Developments [Aboriginal Financial Officers Association, AFOA]

Publisher: 
Aboriginal Financial Officers Association (AFOA)

This course is a survey of the history of Aboriginal Peoples. Because the breadth of the course is substantial, i.e., from pre-contact to the present, ten modules are insufficient to permit a comprehensive and detailed study of the chronological history of Aboriginal Peoples. This course does enable a study of several significant periods in the political and economic history of Aboriginal Peoples sufficiently that one’s understanding of a general history of Aboriginal Peoples is enhanced.
