1.1504 Native American's In Canada.
This paper presents a critical comparison of two articles entitled: "The history of Indian-Government relations" by J.R. Ponting and R. Gibbons and J. Waldram's "Canada's 'Indian Problem' and the Indian's 'Canada Problem'. It will be shown that the authors have distinctly different approaches to analyzing the relationship between Native peoples and the government. These differences will be highlighted; faults with their arguments pointed out, their reliance on axioms, academic research, assumptions and their interpretation of historical events discussed. Are their arguments logically consistent and based on valid premises? While addressing the extremely complex issue of Native rights and the government's dilemma on how to resolve the problems, the indecisiveness, inconsistency and ongoing adjustment of government policy will be analyzed to gain a better understanding of why conflicts still arise and what the future holds. 9 pgs. 0 f/c. 0b.
