Interview with Robert Goodvoice 9

Robert Goodvoice is from Round Plain Reserve near Prince Albert, Saskatchewan. In this interview (part nine), Goodvoice describes the movement of the Dakota to Canada and their experience of requiring land that was to be assigned by government. He describes the government agreeing to the assignment of land but stating that no healthcare or education would be provided for non-treaty Indians. Goodvoice also describes the difficulty of finding work on reserves, which was only exacerbated by the pass system. With the pass system in place, Indigenous individuals could not find work outside the reserve, and if they were absent from the reserve for around ten days, the police would be notified
