"The article, 'Understanding Treaty as Covenant', was graciously provided by Stan McKay". -- p. iv.
"'In Peace and Friendship' is a response to those who faith or conscience compels them to understand more deeply the struggles of Aboriginal peoples in Canada. It provides an opportunity, particularly for non-Aboriginal people, to open themselves to a new perspective by exploring a relationship with the original inhabitants of this land that recognizes their unique nationhood. .... [It] is an educational resource for groups of youth or adults, within a congregation, a regional church body or as an open community event. There are five sessions. This resource could be used as a series of weekly workshops for a local group or linked together for a 2-day conference or retreat. The first and fifth sessions assume a Christian perspective". -- p. i.

"Hydroelectric development has sidelines Aboriginal peoples from the sustenance and beauty of the lands and waters given to them by the Creator. It is now time they re-assume their rightful place in caring for and restoring their homeland. Perhaps then, those lands and waters will bring much-needed healing to the people. Hydroelectric development on northern Manitoba rivers in the past three decades has re-engineered watersheds that were entrusted to Aboriginal peoples by the Creator. Such development, which generates 75% of the electricity produced in Manitoba, has impacted those Aboriginal peoples in ways that cut to the very heart of their existence". -- Executive Summary.
