In the spring of 2002, the Office of the British Columbia Regional Vice-Chief of the Assembly of First Nations (AFN) asked the Native Nations Institute for Leadership, Management, and Policy at The University of Arizona to provide that office with an analysis of the First Nations Governance Act (Bill C-61). In particular, AFN asked us to evaluate the proposed legislation from the point of view of the research
findings of the Harvard Project on American Indian Economic Development. This report is the result of that request.
