We Are Not You: First Nations and Canadian Modernity, paper ed


We are Not You: First Nations and Canadian Modernity begins with a 1992 court case, Peters vs Campbell, in which Joseph Peters sued members of his Coast Salish community who, at his wife's instigation, forced him to undergo traditional ceremonies in order to resolve issues with alcohol and family. The intriguing news media accounts caught the author Claude Denis' attention and he began this analysis. Chapters discuss nationalisms, colonialism, individual freedoms, self-government, gender equity, pluralisms, and limit experience.
