Description

Aboriginal People and Colonizers of Western Canada to 1900 is an accessible history of Indian-White relations in the provinces of Western Canada. The role of Native People in Canadian history has undergone a tremendous transformation in recent years. University of Calgary historian Sarah Carter focuses on the multiplicity of perspectives that exist on past events. She refers to almost all of the current scholarship from the last three decades and presents the opposing versions on every major topic. Topics include the impact of European diseases, changing interpretations of the fur trade, the Red River Settlement, the Metis and Louis Riel, missionaries, treaties, disappearance of the buffalo, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, the role of women, and the policies of the Canadian government. This highly readable history is recommended for high school and introductory level university courses.
