Royal Commission on Aboriginal Peoples - Transcriptions of Public Hearings and Round Table Discussions
File contains a presentation by Chief Edmund Metatawabin focusing on Aboriginal self-government. He states that local First Nations government must be empowered first to oversee health and family services, education, public works and security, police protection, housing, and other issues relating to First Nations on a local level. Once that structure is in place can Aboriginal leaders call for self-government on a national level. Cecilia Scott, youth representative, speaks briefly about the importance of education for Aboriginal youth. Following the presentation is a lengthy question-and-answer session with the Commissioners.
