Indigenous Politics

The Royal Proclamation of 1763 recognized Indigenous rights and is sometimes referred to as the first constitution by Indigenous leaders, pre-dating the BNA Act of 1867. Manuel and Derrickson (Unsettling Canada) write about the changes to the 1982 Constitution and the Indigenous movement (Constitution Express) across Canada to ensure Indigenous rights were included in Section 35. Considering this, do you think Indigenous efforts to influence Crown and later Government policy (ie Section 35) were or were not a form of resistance to colonization and imperialism? Explain your response.
