Persistently and patiently the Indians of British Columbia have sought redress. Always the appeal has been made to the constituted authority by means of peaceful persuasion. Frequently there has been at least indirect admission of the justice of our claim. Accompanied occasionally by grudging and minor adjustments such as the institution of the British Columbia Special Grants as an illustration. Never has there been a total denial, but equally certainly, never has there been satisfaction. Meantime the lot of the Indian on many of the reserves continues to be substandard, his culture vanishing, his role one of enforced dependency.
