According to political scientist Alan C. Cairns, Canada's wardship treatment for status Indians was clearly summed up by anthropologist Noel Dyck when he wrote, "From birth to death most Indians have been caught in a situation where they have had to listen to one unvarying and unceasing message-that they are unacceptable as they are and that to become worthwhile as individuals they must change in the particular manner advocated by their current tutelage agents."
