Conflict in Caledonia: Aboriginal Land Rights and the Rule of Law, hardcover ed.

$121.80

On 28 February 2006, the Six Nations of the Grand River blocked workers from entering a half-built housing development in southern Ontario. They renamed the land Kanonhstaton, “the protected place.” The protest drew attention to the issue of Aboriginal land rights and sparked a series of ongoing events known as the “Caledonia Crisis.” Laura DeVries’ account of the dispute links the actions of local residents, government officials, and the police – and the current of racism released by the conflict – to entrenched non-Aboriginal discourses about law, landscape, and identity.
