Description

No Place for Fairness: Indigenous Land Rights and Policy in the Bear Island Case and Beyond by Metis historian David T. McNab captures the essence of the historical background of the land rights issue for Bear Island and the Temagami Blockade of 1988. He covers the history of the early lands negotiations from 1763-1850; government and British Imperial civilization policy and First Nations; stories of Teme-Augama Anishnabi lands and the Huron Robinson Treaty of 1850; Ontario's Aboriginal Policy; the Bear Island Trial; the blockade; the 1990 Treaty of Co-existence; and Oka and the Blockades in Northern Ontario during the summer of 1990. This highly accessible book reads as a series of stories told by the author generally in the first-person. The book includes an extensive bibliography and index. Highly Recommended.
