Noel Dyck
Born in Saskatchewan, with graduate degrees from the University of Saskatchewan and the University of Manchester, Noel Dyck is an associate Professor of Anthropology at Simon Fraiser University. He is editor of Indigenous Peoples and the Nation-State.
"Noel Dyck's book is an important contribution not only to the history of Indian-White relations, but by skilfully dissecting the emergence of White tutelage and its pervasive consequences, it carries a strong message for future Canadian policies, and by implication, for the multivocal discourse which necessity must be part of the construction of the future Canadian and Indian societies."

Georg Henriksen, author of Hunger in the Barrens

WHAT IS THE INDIAN 'PROBLEM'

This book critically examines past and present relations between Indians and governments in Canada, demonstrating the manner in which the Indian 'problem' was created, and how it has been maintained and exacerbated by the policies and administrative practices designed to 'solve' it. In sum: tutelage.

Warning against continued tutelage in the future, Noel Dyck reminds us that "the only way to rectify the ravages that Indian bands have suffered is to stop looking for 'experts' and 'masterplans' and to refuse to accept the presumption that Indians do not know what is their best interest."
