From one of the leading figures in cultural sensitivity and Indigenous relations, Bob Joseph, 21 Things You May Not Know About the Indian Act puts the spotlight on the ongoing impact of the 1876 legislation.

Expanding upon the 2016 article of the same name, which went viral, the book is an essential guide to understanding how the Act has controlled and constrained generations of Indigenous Peoples and how to step out from under the shadow of its oppressive legacy.

This conversation will be an invaluable opportunity for anyone looking to expand their knowledge around reconciliation and how Indigenous Peoples can return to self-determination and self-reliance.

This event will be followed by a book signing.
