Abstract: 

This is the third and final volume in a series of publications put out by the Aboriginal Healing Foundation. The series has been dedicated to a journey of reconciliation and this final volume does so by looking through the lens of cultural diversity. The publications in this volume are from perspectives outside the norms of the French and British and focus primarily on the perspectives of new Canadians. Aboriginal people have had a traumatic history in Canada and it is important that new comers to Canada understand the history and relationship that Aboriginal peoples have had with the Crown as it is different than other Canadians. This is the final publication that will be put out by the Aboriginal Healing Foundation as it is in its final year of operation.
