#IdleNoMore in Historical Context

Dr. Glen Coulthard, a member of the Yellowknives Dene First Nation and an Assistant Professor in the UBC First Nations Studies Program and Department of Political Science, has written a short analysis of the historical context that led to the Royal Commission on Aboriginal Peoples (RCAP) in an effort to get a better understanding of the transformative political possibilities in the present moment. His analysis is available in the online, interdisciplinary, Open Access journal, Decolonization: Indigeneity, Education & Society
