"I'm On Home Ground Now. I'm Safe:" Saskatchewan Aboriginal Veterans in the Immediate Post-War Years, 1945-1946

From the Author's Abstract: “Innes provides an overview of the Aboriginal participation in the Second World War. He scrutinizes how the image of Indians in the media, though based on nineteenth-century stereotypes, shifted from being negative in the prewar era to being positive during the war. He also shows that although the image of veterans as progressive was crucial in placing Indian rights discourse in the public arena, veterans themselves had little direct impact on the Indian rights movement in the immediate postwar period.”
