In this ethnographic case study of an interior British Columbia community, the author looks at the roots of social conflicts and examines how prevalent colonial assumptions of history, identity and Aboriginal/non-Aboriginal relations affect the livesMoreIn this ethnographic case study of an interior British Columbia community, the author looks at the roots of social conflicts and examines how prevalent colonial assumptions of history, identity and Aboriginal/non-Aboriginal relations affect the lives of all the residents. She shows how assumptions about colonisation permeate many aspects of everyday life and work to reinforce the marginalization of the native people of the area but she also points out that the native people are engaging in strategies to confront and challenge the frontier complex.

While focused on Williams Lake, this book has a much broader relevance and throws light on current debates about Aboriginal and settler understandings of history, the legitimacy of Aboriginal claims, and the place of Aboriginal people in Canadian society.
