coatesbookcoverThe Hill Times is lauding two books by MLI-affiliated authors on Aboriginal affairs as being among the best of 2015.

From Treaty Peoples To Treaty Nation, written by MLI Senior Fellow Ken Coates and author Greg Poelzer, ranked number 37 on the Hill Times’ list of the 100 best books in 2015.

The book lays out a practical road map for fostering Aboriginal prosperity. Coates and Poelzer lift themselves above the fray and clearly lay out the history, the complex policies, the cultural assumptions, the mix of overlapping and divergent opinions, and look at the approaches that have failed and succeeded in the past.

Coates’ #IdleNoMore And The Remaking Of Canada ranked at number 43. The book examines the lasting impact the Idle No More movement will have on Aboriginal Canadians and the country as a whole.
