Description

The Red Indians: An Episodic, Informal Collections of Tales from the Aboriginal People's Struggles in Canada is an interesting and highly accessible introduction to issues relating to Aboriginal Peoples in Canada. Written without capitals, indexes, or footnotes, this work introduces students to specific issues in history and politics through a unique style of storytelling. Originally written as newspaper columns, the selections cover a range of topics such as early contact, hydroelectric dams, treaties, the Indian Act, the 1969 White Paper, Batoche, the fur trade, Fred Loft and the League of Indians, the Lubicon Cree, and the Royal Proclamation. While the title is an interesting throw back to earlier European understandings of Aboriginal Peoples, the author draws the reader's attention the colonial practice of naming. The book is a fascinating approach to Canadian history.
