Native American History

Welcome all with open minds. This is the story of Native Americans, First Nations, and other indigenous peoples of North America. This is the story of famous faces, intricate mythologies, great battles, brilliant minds, and preservers of a bygone era. Here we will cover the political and social forces behind Aboriginal-white relations from land claims to residential schools, cultural and linguistic traditions to colonial conflicts that continue to this day. We are not sensationalists, but advocates for a thriving culture that is steeped in tradition and mystery.
