Aboriginal Documentary Heritage: Historical Collections of the Canadian Government.

Library and Archives Canada has an online exhibition entitled Aboriginal Documentary Heritage: Historical Collections of the Canadian Government that provides "first-hand information illustrating the complex and often contentious relationship between the Canadian government and Canada's Aboriginal people from the late 1700s to the mid-20th century".

"The website presents three thematic sections with essays and selected documents about the Red and Black Series (the Department of Indian and Northern Affairs' administrative records of Aboriginal people from 1872 to the 1950s), Treaties, Surrenders and Agreements, and Aboriginal Soldiers in the First World War. This phase of the project features searchable databases of digitized records from the Department of Indian and Northern Affairs ... fonds. It includes records for the majority of the Red Series (documents dealing with Eastern Canadian locations ... ), and the entire 524 records that form the Treaties, Surrenders and Agreements in the collection of Library and Archives Canada (LAC)."

And don't forget to take a look at the LAC's extensive Resources for Aboriginal Research.
