This paper considers various aspects of Indigenous Peoples' participation in Canada's immigration policy paradigm by asking whether Indigenous involvement can support relationships between Indigenous and newcomer peoples and the state. Critical Indigenous and newcomer scholars posit that relationships must be fostered outside the state apparatus. Approaches to decolonization and reconciliation need not solely take place outside of formal mechanisms. However, scholars point to a politics of refusal as a legitimate means to circumvent the oppressive structural foundation of Indigenous and state relations. The modes of refusal are plentiful, creative, and point to a relationship between peoples that goes beyond education as a tool for reconciliation while understanding it to be a fundamental part of the healing process. Regardless of the form Indigenous involvement would take, this paper fosters a necessary discussion based on an ethics of consent and subsequent action.
