First Nations governance handbook : a resource guide for effective councils.: R2-171/2001E-PDF

"The First Nations Governance Handbook: A Resource Guide for Effective Councils deals with how a First Nation Council can be more effective. A Working Committee of First Nations Chiefs and Indian and Northern Affairs Canada (INAC) officials sponsored the Handbook because many newly elected councillors, and chiefs, had expressed a desire to know what their new duties were. While many books describe the roles and responsibilities of leaders and boards of directors, none deal with the special work of First Nations Councils. The Working Committee intends that the Handbook be a useful resource for councillors who would like to build a strong, stable organization in their community."--Introduction.
