In this episode of Red Man Laughing we take a look at the collision between the Indian Act & reconciliation and we investigate the question whether reconciliation is even possible with the Indian Act in place in Canada in 2016.

In this episode we look at the history, intention & fallout of the Indian Act & we ask the essential question – how in the hell do we get rid of the Indian Act? Abolishing the Indian Act is very tricky business – law, treaty and reserve land would all be in question in doing away with the Indian Act – there are arguments for keeping the Indian Act. There is one thing for certain – there is no easy path to abolishing the Indian act, but there are thousands of opinions.
