Differing Visions: Administering Indian Residential Schooling in Prince Albert 1867-1995 is an analysis of a single residential school in north-central Saskatchewan. The author teaches in the Department of Sociology and Anthropology at Simon Fraser University. The current study was prepared on behalf of the Prince Albert Chiefs for their communities. The author approached the study by examining only the administration and operation of this particular residential which was transferred from church and state control to the First Nations political organization, the Prince Albert District Chiefs. There are no first hand accounts by former students instead the author reviews the administrative records for the school. He begins with an historical overview from the beginning of the school established by the Presbyterian Church through the change to an Anglican-run school to the final Indian-controlled school residence, known as the Prince Albert Indian Student Education Centre. The most interesting section of the book deals with the devolution of education administration from Indian and Northern Affairs Canada (INAC) to band-control. Here the author examines the Department's perception of a Native student residence as compared to the actual facility where most of the children in residence required social intervention as well as schooling. The Native administrators of the student residence were forced to deal with down-loading and an ever-decreasing budget from INAC. Throughout these changes the student residence managed to serve over 300 children per year. The author includes archival photographs, an index, and bibliography. Anyone interested in the administration of Native education will find interesting reading.
