Format: Paperback
This book does an awesome job of describing the way First Nations are portrayed and the historic treatment of First Nations.
All stereotypes and how they were so acceptable in days gone by.
Really is an eye opener and unbelievable.
I couldn't imagine having to live as a First Nations person and the newcomers are either trying to eradicate you or convert you from who you are to an image of them selves.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent book to open your eyes Oct. 23 2008
By A. MacNeil - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I am using this book in my fnat class at VIU and am amazed at how easy it is to understand. Daniel Francis is non-native and he manages to give many perspectives to the image non-natives have of first nations people.
He breaks it down to explain how from first contact non-natives have been creating the "image" of what we think is "indian". Francis helps you figure out where all the myths and cultural misconcepts come from and why many of these ideas were encouraged by non-natives and who gained from these myths. Fascinating reading, I finished it weeks before I was supposed to!
