“Canadians from day one have been in a state of denial about what happened in this country,” Frank Cassidy told CBC News in 2004, “The reality is settlers came here, there were people living here and the settlers and the governments took away their land, and disrespected the institutions of the people that were here. That is the reality that took place.” In conjunction with the Institute for Research on Public Policy in Halifax, University of Victoria professor Frank Cassidy has co-edited various collections of essays about native land claims with Norman Dale and Robert L. Bish, After Native Land Claims? (1988) and Indian Government: Its Meaning in Practice (1989), in which Aboriginal self-government in 17 First Nations is considered. He subsequently edited Reaching Just Settlements: Land Claims in British Columbia (1991), Aboriginal Self-Determination (1991) and Aboriginal Title in British Columbia: Delgamuukw v. the Queen: proceedings of a conference held September 10 & 11, 1991 (1992).
