What I Learned in Class Today: Aboriginal Issues in the Classroom – CBC

Wednesday, Jun. 25, 2008 | 10:45 PM AT

To make these situations visible and to find ways to have more professional and productive classroom discussions, two undergraduate students in the First Nations Studies Program at the University of British Columbia, Karrmen Crey and Amy Perreault, developed What I Learned in Class Today: Aboriginal Issues in the Classroom.

Status about more than cash

MARCIA ANDERSON
June 25, 2008

Winnipeg — Margaret Wente wrote that Bill C-31 allowed those who married off-reserve to regain their status and that status became “worth having” after the Tsawwassen First Nation struck a profitable deal (Tsawwassen Treaty Takedown – June 21). The reality of the Indian Act and Bill C-31 was that prior to it being passed, first nations women lost their first nations status if they married someone not registered as an Indian under the Indian Act.
