Native Studies scholar Peter Kulchyski writes in his slim but provocative 2013 book, Aboriginal Rights Are Not Human Rights (ARP Books), that the notorious 1969 White Paper – a failed attempt by the Trudeau government to wipe out Indian status and its accompanying rights – was informed by liberal human rights doctrine. If we are all equal, the logic went, we should all be the same. No special rights for Indians.

Seriously this book was bs. Wish I would have done more research before picking it up--I would not have read it if I knew he was not an aboriginal writer. He talks about how he's done so much for aboriginal rights, but he's just another white guy patting himself on the back, as it were. If I could give the book a lower rating, I would.
