dc.description.abstract This dissertation examines the emergence and evolution of Indian political organizations in late nineteenth and early twentieth century Canada. It focuses on the strategies Indian leaders of this period used to renew old political relationships and to try to forge new political relationships, in their pursuit of recognition of their political objectives: to mitigate the worst effects of colonial Canada and to obtain greater political influence in Canada. This work challenges the myth that Indian people were passive and reactionary, uninformed of or unresponsive to politics in Canada. en
