"The Aboriginal Rights Coalition (ARC) is presenting this collection of essays as the latest in a series of public education projects it has undertaken since the release of the final report of the Royal Commission on Aboriginal Peoples (RCAP) in 1996. This book was conceived of as a much-needed review of the government of Canada's response to the Royal Commission. In embarking on this project ARC asked the contributors to consider several related issues: What has the federal government's response been to the report of the Royal Commission on Aboriginal Peoples ? Has the government's response been adequate ? Has the response been made in the spirit and intent of the Royal Commission's challenge to Canadians to build a new relationship between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal peoples based on mutual recognition, respect, sharing and responsibility ?' -- Preface.
Contents divided into three main parts: Part One: Exploring Perspectives on the Federal Government's Response to the Report of the Royal Commission on Aboriginal Peoples -- Part Two: Departures -- Part Three: The International Dimension.

"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.
