Title: The administration of federal Indian aid in the North-West Territories, 1879-1885 : a thesis submitted to the Faculty of Graduate Studies in partial fulfilment of the requirements for the degree of Master of Arts in the Department of History, University of Saskatchewan / by Noel Evan Dyck
Published: Saskatoon : [s.n.], 1970.
Description: viii, 103, x leaves : map ; 29 cm
Notes: The thesis examines the actions and policies of the federal government in its attempts to transform the Indians in Treaties Four, Six and Seven into self sufficient farmers. Because of the limited success of this programme, the government unwillingly undertook the expense of feeding them. The federal aid was insufficient to quiet the growing Indian agitation which led to the Rebellion.
