Description

Dishonour of the Crown: The Ontario Resource Regime in the Valley of the Kiji Sibi is a slim volume by a member of the Ardoch Algonquin First Nation about the impact of uranium resource development on the traditional lands of the Nation. Paula Sherman, Indigenous Studies Professor at Trent University, writes a concise history of the roles of the government and the exploration company (Frontenac Ventures) as these partners proceeded to explore the possibility of developing a uranium mine. The author details the process from the perspective of the First Nation and sets this in the context of mineral exploration on Indigenous Peoples' territories.
