   If you find Indigenous issues to be baffling and confusing, you’re not alone. Federal politicians and bureaucrats have had 50 years since Indian Affairs became a government department to address the vexing issues facing Canada’s Indigenous people. It’s reasonable to say most fair-minded Canadians are not impressed with the results. If we want meaningful change, it has to come from us—the first people and settlers.

   Reconciliation cannot happen without us.
