Issue 27 Editorials and rejoinders

Inroads 27 looks inside a number of developments, from northwestern British Columbia to Sweden to Turkey and back to Canada’s inner cities, through the eyes of people who have helped make these developments happen. Gordon Gibson, an adviser to the Gitxsan Hereditary Chiefs in northwestern B.C., explains the Chiefs’ groundbreaking proposal that would make their nation fully Canadian and still proudly Gitxsan, but no longer “Indian.” Inroads co-publisher John Richards, who helped design the Urban Aboriginal Peoples Study as a member of its advisory circle, offers an introduction to the study’s portrait of the 50 per cent of Canadian Aboriginals who live in cities. Two other articles look at the transformation of the Swedish city of Malmö and Turkey’s complex and delicate dance with Europe.
