The title was supplied by Kitchener-Waterloo Record staff. The word “Indian” was used as a catchall to describe Indigenous peoples in Canada, more commonly referred to as members of First Nations, Inuit or Métis communities. The title has been maintained in its original form, in keeping with archival practice, to preserve the context in which the item was created. This approach, while potentially upsetting, allows for the critical assessment and questioning of historical material by contemporary researchers.
