Stolen Lands, Broken Promises
Researching the Indian Land Question in British Columbia (Second Edition)

Stolen Lands, Broken Promises is intended as a practical, hands-on resource for Indigenous community members wanting to conduct research on a variety of issues affecting traditional territory and reserve lands in British Columbia.  It is designed to guide researchers through the processes of planning and successfully completing lands-related research projects that have a strong historical component. 

To download the entire manual, click here (40MB). However, the manual is very large and we recommend that you download the chapters you need by following the links in the Table of Contents.

A limited number of print copies are available, for a cost of $25 and shipping.  See complete details on the order form.

Important note: In June 2005, the provincial government announced changes to certain ministries. The changes mainly affect the Ministry of Sustainable Resource Management, the Ministry of Water, Land, and Air Protection, and the Ministry of Community, Aboriginal, and Women's Services. We will update the manual once the consequences of these changes become clear.
