Arthur Manuel is a Secwepemc-Ktunaca activist and co-author of Unsettling Canada: A National Wake-Up Call. He discusses colonization in Canada and how this systemically impoverished Indigenous Peoples for generations. If Canada is going to renew its relationship with Indigenous Peoples it must recognize the colonial relationship it has with Indigenous Peoples. Canada must recognize that this colonial relationship gives Indigenous Peoples the right to self-determination. This will become clearer when Canada celebrates 150 years of its settler colonial relationship with Britain in 2017.

This was part of the Indigenous Education Week at the University of Toronto.
