Abstract

This chapter is an historical analysis of the relationship between Indigenous peoples and the Canadian military. It identifies three overlapping and sometimes conflicting streams of military policy: (1) Indigenous dispossession (2) discrimination to inclusion and (3) reconciliation and consultation. The main argument is that the third stream offers the best way forward for Canada, since it brings the CAF into a new age of respect and reciprocity and therefore to much-improved set of relations with Indigenous peoples.
