Banners hanging inside the university: one banner depicting a buffalo labelled “FNUC” being fired upon from an Indian Affairs vehicle. For many First Nations Peoples, education is referred to as the “new buffalo.” Even the quasi-colonial memorandum of understanding between the Indian Nations and the UofR has not been enough for the federal government and Minister Strahl.

The Dominion is a monthly paper published by an incipient network of independent journalists in Canada.
