Treaty & Constitutional Negotiations of 1980-82: Understanding the Past to Create the Future.

This is an interview I did with the great and knowledgeable Tony Belcourt who is a Metis leader from Ontario. He was there when Aboriginal organisations and especially the Metis defended their ideals of sovereignty and treaty rights. He discusses the roles and the histories surrounding the 1980-1982 Constitutional negotiations between the federal, provincial governments and the Aboriginal governments. For anyone wanting to know more where the word Aboriginal comes from, the origins of many Aboriginal organisations and the importance of this era to Indigenous Rights in Canada you would do well to listen to the words of Tony.

Understand the past to create the future.
