Format: Hardcover
Meticulously researched and informatively presented by Shelagh D. Grant (Adjunct Professor of History and Canadian Studies, Trent University), Arctic Justice: On Trial For Murder, Pond Inlet, 1923 is the true and accurate historical account of how the Canadian government asserted its power and control in the High Arctic. When an unwise trapper threatened to kill the sled dogs of a Baffin Island Inuit group, the natives followed the Inuit customary law that individuals who threaten the community must be killed, -- and then executed him. For the first time, Canadian law authorities put the individual Inuit who carried out the sentence and two accomplices of his on trial for murder in a move, argues the author, that was not meant to bring justice to the Inuit community, but rather to establish Canadian sovereignty over the Arctic. A fascinating and carefully detailed account of law, history, politics, and the erosion of Native American sovereignty, Arctic Justice is an original and very highly recommended contribution to Native American Studies and Canadian History reference collections.
