An excellent detailed book about the history of North American natives. It is the type of book that should be on the reading list of anyone studying Canadian or American or first nations history. It helps the non natives to understand the unpleasant history we have engaged in over the last five centuries. Non native governments have effectively stripped the native populaion of their land, resouces, language, social customs, rights and governments. Our predecessors and still today, our current non native governments and societies treat natives as people without entitlements and people who are making unwarranted demands. I once thought that non native Canadians were nice people. We are not. As events unfold with the Truth and Reconciliation Commission and a possible inquiry into the missing and murdered native women we may have a chance to remedy inequities.
A wonderful and lucid read, chock full of digestible information. More books like this could lead to something akin to peace, love and understanding.
