Scope and contentFile contains a presentation by Sarah Anala. Anala is an Innu woman originally from Labrador, a member of the New Brunswick Aboriginal Peoples' Council, and a board member of the New Brunswick Native Indian Women's Council Inc. Anala relates her personal, spiritual, and cultural background. She discusses linguistic issues, inter-governmental relations, special needs education, racism in the education system, the importance in her view of stressing individuality, the need to address racism in schools in a systemic yet grassroots way, and the need for Aboriginal people to become "proud, resourceful, self-dependent peoples" again. Following the presentation are thanks and a few short remarks by Commissioners by Sarah Anala and Rene Dussault.
