In Indigenous nonprofit governance, values matter more than tools

With the implementation of the Gradual Civilization and Gradual Enfranchisement sections of the Indian Act in 1876, Indigenous peoples across Canada have continually faced racism, discrimination, exploitation, and domination. The Act, designed for the purpose of assimilating Indigenous communities into the dominant system and eradicating any traditional ways of life, is a continual source of trauma, impoverishment, and a detriment to the social fabric of Indigenous communities, Nations, and families.
