Existing government policies, Wadden argues, perpetuate the problems that are tearing Aboriginal families and communities apart. We must make social healing in Aboriginal communities an immediate national priority.

In the hundred years since British Columbia joined Confederation, Canada has negotiated only one treaty in the province. A decade after signing the Nisga'a treaty, and despite spending hundreds of millions of dollars, the BC Treaty Commission process had not finalized a single treaty.
This impassioned book explains why. The long answer to the question, says author Tony Penikett, is rooted in colonial history: provincial resistance, federal indifference and judicial equivocation. The short answer is that Canadian governments have wanted treaties solely on their own terms. Me Funny is a recent anthology of eleven articles edited by Drew Hayden Taylor that tackle the subject of First Nations and humour. Ten writers from a variety of disciplines were selected to comment on the nature and scope of Native humour in all its forms.
In the introduction, Taylor comments that Ojibwe linguist and educator, Basil Johnston, declined an invitation to contribute because he believes any analysis would most likely leave the incorrect impression for many readers.
