Differing Visions: Administering Indian Residential Schooling in Prince Albert, 1867-1995

From the Publisher:

"Growing a Race challenges the traditional reading of the fiction of Nellie McClung (1873-1951), revered author and pioneering feminist, situating it within a discourse of eugenical feminism that sought a racially homogenous "white Dominion."

Separate Beds

From the Title Page:

"Separate Beds is the shocking story of Canada’s system of segregated health care. Operated by the same bureaucracy that was expanding health care opportunities for most Canadians, the “Indian Hospitals” were underfunded, understaffed, overcrowded, and rife with coercion and medical experimentation. Established to keep the Aboriginal tuberculosis population isolated, they became a means of ensuring that other Canadians need not share access to modern hospitals with Aboriginal patients.

No Surrender: The Land Remains Indigenous

Excerpt from Authors' Introduction:

"Indigenous men and those who identify with Indigenous masculinities, as this book shows, are faced with distinct gender and racial biases that cause many to struggle.

Elder Brother and the Law of the People: Contemporary Kinship and Cowessess First Nation

Excerpt from the Author, Page 10-11:

"...Recently, scholars, having recognized that race as a “natural human division in human populations has been widely discredited by science,” have focused their attention on Métis cultural expression rather than race as the source of difference. Nevertheless, race is still an implied factor in many scholars’ discussion of, for example, the ethnogenesis of the Métis.
