Roundtable on Citizenship and Membership Issues
This paper provides an overview of the second event of IOG’s TANAGA (Towards a New Aboriginal Governance Agenda) roundtable series. The session explored issues around status and membership in Aboriginal communities and tackled questions such as: What defines a ‘status Indian’ and a ‘community member’? What will Aboriginal communities look like in several generations given these definitions? And how do these rules affect life in the communities?
