In "Real" Indians and Others Lawrence draws on the first-person
accounts of thirty Toronto residents of Native heritage, as well as
archival materials, sociological research, and her own urban Native
heritage and experiences. She sheds light on the Canadian
government's efforts to define Native identity through the years by
means of the Indian Act and shows how residential schooling, the
loss of official Indian status, and adoption have affected Native
identity. Lawrence looks at how Natives with "Indian status" react
and respond to "nonstatus" Natives and how federally recognized
Native peoples attempt to impose an identity on urban Natives.
