Our Moderator will be fasting this Friday, January 11, in support of “#idlenomore”. If you need to get a quick introduction to the history of Native Peoples in Canada and the United States then the recently published book by Thomas King, “The Inconvenient Indian: A curious account of Native People in North America” is what you should get. It is available in hardcover or ebook. Or you could listen to his 2003 Massey lectures.
CBC Books has an interview here.
