National indigenous policies: R5-229/1972E-PDF

Canada and Mexico /

"Several years ago a small task force was assigned the duty of preparing a paper for senior officials of the Department of Indian Affairs and Northern Development on "Comparative Policies of Five Nations in Native Affairs Administration". Nations examined were the United States, Canada, Mexico, Australia and New Zealand. Areas isolated for treatment were Constitutional Background, Legislation, Administrative Organization, Lands and Programs and Services. The rationale for selection of nations and areas of study was not specified, but it seems obvious that geographic location and historicocultural background were prime ingredients in the former, and that the bias was towards administration of policy, following its foundation within a legal framework."--Background.
