Description

What Has No Place, Remains is written by Nicholas Shrubsole, Humanities lecturer at the University of Central Florida. This book explores the barriers Indigenous People of Canada experienced regarding religious freedom in the past and those still present today. 

Framed through a postcolonial lens, What Has No Place, Remains analyses state actions, responses, and decisions on matters of Indigenous religious freedom. The book is particularly concerned with legal cases, such as Ktunaxa Nation v. British Columbia (2017), but also draws on political negotiations, such as those at Voisey’s Bay, and standoffs, such as the one at Gustafsen Lake, to generate a more comprehensive picture of the challenges for Indigenous religious freedom beyond Canada’s courts.
