Description

Storying Violence: Unravelling Colonial Narratives in the Stanley Trial is written by Gina Starblanket, Cree/Saulteaux and a member of the Star Blanket Cree Nation in Treaty 4 territory; and Dallas Hunt, Cree and a member of Wapsewsipi (Swan River First Nation) in Treaty 8 territory in Northern Alberta. Storying Violence uses colonial and socio-political narratives that underlie white rural settler life to discuss the fatal shooting of Cree youth Colten Boushie by Saskatchewan farmer Gerald Stanley in August of 2016. The authors position the death of Boushie and trial of Stanley in relation to Indigenous histories and experiences in Saskatchewan. They point to the Stanley case as just one instance of Indigenous peoples presence being seen as a threat to settler colonial security, then used to sanction the exclusion, violent treatment, and death of Indigenous peoples and communities.
