FNUC is the only First Nations university in Canada. If Harper’s government gets its way, by August 31 there will be no such university in Canada. Lay-offs have already begun at FNUC, and by the end of summer the university will have lost what the AUCC states is the largest concentration of Aboriginal faculty in one institution in the world. If the decision is reversed and funding is returned, Saskatchewan Indian Nations will have lost most governance of the university and will have all its finances overseen by UofR administrators. Whatever the final outcome of the funding situation, colonialism has reasserted its power and control over Aboriginal education.

The Dominion is a monthly paper published by an incipient network of independent journalists in Canada. It aims to provide accurate, critical coverage that is accountable to its readers and the subjects it tackles. Taking its name from Canada's official status as both a colony and a colonial force, the Dominion examines politics, culture and daily life with a view to understanding the exercise of power.
