This fully updated third edition of a vital text on the history of indigenous peoples comes from the thorough research of a First Nations descendent. By turns revealing and deeply unsettling, the book details the brutal treatment and complete displacement of the Mi'kmaq civilization at the hands of European settlers. The author's ongoing research casts doubt on the recorded tales of Canadian colonization and reveals that the mistreatment of First Nations peoples is not confined to the past.

A really vital book for understanding the history of this Nova Scotian land and the Miqmaw people. A long and in depth look at the violence of colonialism locally and what has been done to resist it. I found it incredibly interesting, though at times difficult, to read. I think residents of Kjupktuk (Halifax) should be taught these things in school to gain a greater understanding of the violent history and current state Miqmaw people have survived and live in now.
