Tireless Runners: A Family History of Indigenous Canada by Robert Jago, a registered member of the Kwantlen First Nation in British Columbia and the Nooksack Tribe in Washington State, tells the history of colonization from pre-contact to the present day through the multi-generational story of one Indigenous family. Tireless Runners is the multi-generational story of the Sacquilty family, part of the Kwantlen First Nation in southwestern British Columbia. Prior to first contact in the 1800s, the Sacquilty were a wealthy family living in a region rich from fishing and trade.
