Journeying Forward: Dreaming First Nations? Independence

  title={Journeying Forward: Dreaming First Nations? Independence},
  author={Patricia Monture-Angus},
Questioning the ability of political organizations to assist in fully eradicating the oppression of First Nations and their citizens, the author critically reflects on the meaning of "self-government"--and the obstacles as well as solutions to some of its challenges. Concluding that self-government as a goal is too narrow and overly inundated by colonial meanings to be a full solution, Monture-Angus rejects the idea of "self-government" in favor of a much larger idea, independence.
