Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book only depicts white historical events, nothing accurate about being from the beginning unless your talking about colonization & exploitation … in one of the volumes (1 or 2, not sure which) the book states that the Metis were a problem because they were of mixed blood and had immunity to many of the diseases that were killing the indigenous people. Distasteful perceptions.
