"'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. ....

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.

Text
That the resolution appearing on page 250 of the Convening Circular be withdrawn, and the following substituted therefor:
"Whereas the 1965 General Synod expressed its intention to undertake one or more pilot projects in an attempt to discover more effective ways of working with Indian and partly Indian communities within the context of Community Development philosophy, and,
Whereas the Report of the Interdepartmental Committee on Indian/Eskimo affairs to the 1967 General Synod states that there is need for research and planning to form a consistent policy of the Anglican Church of Canada to Indian work:
Be It Therefore Resolved (1) that this General Synod requests the Long Range Planning Committee, or the appropriate arm of General Synod, to give its full support to and become actively involved in projects enabling Indians to discuss their own proposals for self-determination and which provide discussion between Indians and other Canadians;
And Further (2) that the Long Range Planning Committee, or the appropriate arm of General Synod prepare a Report to be presented to the next General Synod of the needs, concerns and recommendations expressed in such projects;
And Further (3) that the National Executive Council be asked to provide $20,000 for each of the two years 1969 and 1970 (that is a total of $40,000) in the budgets of those years to implement the recommendations of the Report." CARRIED in both Houses.

Prologue
The Bishop of Quebec reported on behalf of the Committee as follows:
HOUSE OF BISHOPS COMMITTEE ON NATIVE CANADIANS
Action taken by the committee
1. At the suggestion of the Primate the name of the Committee was changed to "The House of Bishops Committee on Native Canadians."
2. The Rev. J.G. Kohner, on behalf of the Planning Board of the Diocese of Montreal proposed that liaison be set up between this Committee and the Montreal Planning Board, with a view to the exchange of information and the possible setting up of a facility in Montreal for the referral of Indians and Eskimos to suitable boarding homes when they visit Montreal and other larger centres for education, hospitalization and employment.
It was agreed that this proposal could be worked out by cooperative action on the part of the Bishops concerned and the Montreal Diocesan Planning Board.
3. The members of the Committee were kept informed of the proposal of the M.S.C.C. Executive Committee to seek a meeting with those Bishops who have Residential Schools and Hostels for Indians and Eskimos in their Dioceses. This meeting has now been arranged at Aurora on November 10 and 11, 1966.
4. The Secretary was asked to make enquiries of the Bishops of those Dioceses which have Catechists' and/or Lay Readers' Schools regarding dates, locations, cost and method of financing, ages, etc.
5. Some time was spent in consideration of the answers to the Questionnaire which had been been sent to all Diocesan Bishops.
Out of these discussions there were questions raised as to whether this Committee should recommend a policy for the Church with respect to encouraging the Indian and Eskimo peoples to regain facility in the use of their native languages as a means of preserving their culture and recapturing their pride of race, along with a facility in the use of English for communicating with non-Indians.
6. There was considerable discussion of the need to establish the responsibility of Government and the Churches in relation to Indians who move from reservations to urban centres and thereby lose their treaty rights.
There was concern expressed also for the large number of Indians who have no reserves or treaties. These Indians are sometimes forced off the lands which they have occupied for generations through the development of roads, mines, oil wells, power developments, etc. What kind of compensation should they be entitled to ?
The opinion was expressed that Government ought to have a continuing responsibility to provide for those Indians who leave the Reserves and go to urban centres, the same services they would be entitled to on the Reserve, including housing assistance, education, health ad welfare services.
The members of the Committee stated again that there is a great need for the recruitment of well qualified and experienced Anglican teachers with a positive sense of Christian vocation to teach in Indian and frontier schools.
Concern was also expressed regarding the poor publicity being broadcast through communications media, which is often out of date and mis-informed about the present policies and programmes of the Churches and various levels of Government. The hope was expressed that more may be done by the Church's communications media to give more adequate and up-to-date information.

Prologue
The report of the Committee appointed by the Primate to follow up the 1963 report of Canon Trevor Jones was presented by the Bishop of Quebec.
Text
"That the report be received."
Notes
Appended to the report were two resolutions which, after amendments by the House, read as follows:
"(1) Resolved that the House of Bishops request the M.S.C.C. to provide a budget for this Committee.
(2) Resolved that, considering the rapid change in culture, education, and economics in north-eastern Ontario and northern Quebec: recognizing the effects such changes are having upon the Indian people in these areas, who were Christianized by the 'Church of England' and therefore look to us for guidance, direction and help, this Committee recommends to the House of Bishops for their consideration and implementation that:
i The suffragan Bishop of Moosonee establish an office and residence in Noranda, Quebec.
ii He develop and maintain a uniformity and continuity of policy amongst the missionaries and Church workers in Indian work in the areal.
iii He act as a liaison officer for the Bishops concerned, representing the Church's policy to the different Government bodies, assisting the people in the presentation of their views, and keeping the Bishops concerned informed of the problems and progress, and the Federal and Provincial Governments informed of this arrangements.
iv The cost of housing, secretarial assistance and additional travel not exceeding $7,500 per annum be provided.
v That this arrangement be reviewed annually by the Primate's Committee on Native Canadians who will report to the House of Bishops."
It was moved by the Bishop of Huron, seconded by the Suffragan Bishop of the Arctic and carried:
"That this House approve the plans submitted by the Committee on Native Canadians and commends them to the appropriate Department and authorities."
