We Were Not the Savages- a MicMac history

£12.99

Product description

Micmac perspective on collision of European and Aboriginal civilisations in Canada.

"We Were Not the Savages is unique, in chronological scope and in the story it tells, covering the last three centuries of Micmac history in detail. Prior to the appearance of this book it was common for historians to downplay or even deny the violence inflicted on any other piece of scholarly production, has headed off that consensus at a pass. Scalp-bounty policies are now recognized, as a historical problem worthy of investigation. This book will also be of particular interest to readers in the United States for a variety of reasons. First, the early history of colonization in the Maritimes is closely tied to the history of the colonies that became the United States, and as late as the 1750's New England's political leaders played a prominent role in directing the course of colonial affairs on Cape Breton Island and Nova Scotia . . . Second, the chapters on the nineteenth and twentieth centuries provide a detailed and much needed basis of comparison for anyone seeking to understand the similarities and contrasts between the U.S. and Canada on questions of "Indian Affairs." And, finally, it is important to recognize that we have far too few histories written by Native American authors - very few indeed that cover as extensive a time span as this book does." - Geoffrey Plank, Associate Professor of History, University of Cincinnati.
