It assesses quite a lot of courses on subject matters that come with the sale of Rupert's Land, the signing of Treaty three, the Northwest uprising and Louis Riel, the loss of life of Pauline Johnson, the trip of gray Owl, the discussions surrounding invoice C-31, the "Bended Elbow" standoff at Kenora, Ontario, and the Oka drawback. The authors discover overwhelming proof that the colonial imaginary not just prospers yet dominates depictions of Aboriginal peoples in mainstream newspapers.
