A Model of Engagement: Reflections on the 25th Anniversary of the Berger Report

by Peter Puxley

In June 2002, the Living History Society of the NWT organized a national symposium to take stock on the 25th anniversary of Justice Berger's report. Peter Puxley, was the research advisor to the Indian Brotherhood of the NWT [now the Dene Nation] during the 1970s and a participant in last year's symposium. In this contribution to an anthology of reflections on the Berger Inquiry, he explains what made that endeavour such a success and why it remains a model for today.
