This revealing book examines how Native peoples have been displaced throughout history in the United States and Canada through treaties, empty promises, and military force. Close examination of primary sources featuring both Native and non-Native viewpoints reveals the attitudes and opinions of the time that led to thousands being displaced and cultures being threatened. Topics covered include government relations and policies, as well as the creation of residential schools and other acts of forced assimilation. A look at relations today sheds light on the lasting repercussions. Uncovering the Past: Analyzing Primary Sources History is in the past, but the way we view it is always changing. This remarkable series examines the historical evidence of events in history giving insight into why evidence is created and by whom, how it can be analyzed and interpreted in various ways, and how controversies in history can develop.
