The New Dominion and the Indian Acts,1867-1914

Wellington St.W. - 41st Floor
At Confederation there was very
little colonial legislation about indigenous peoples. The first
federal legislation on the subject was passed in 1868, and Parliament
augmented that more than two dozen times between then and 1914. The
major statute was the Indian
Act of 1876, but it was continually amended over the
ensuing decades. Professor Phillips will discuss the major policy
goals of this legislative output, which was principally aimed at
assimilating indigenous peoples into settler ways of life and
culture. He will also sketch out the reactions of the indigenous
people themselves to these legislative efforts to undermine and
eventually destroy indigenous culture.
