Urban Indian Reserves


Wheeler's entry comments on the rise of urban reserves in Saskatchewan, and describes the two types of First Nations Landholdings in urban settings. The two types of urban reserves fall under the jurisdiction of municipalities, similar to private holdings, and those that have Indian reserve status, which are now called urban reserves. Wheeler also describes the relationship between municipalities and the Centre for Municipal-Aboriginal Relations.
