Product Description


"This is a definitive work that makes a groundbreaking contribution to our understanding of Canadian Aboriginal Treaties, and sheds enormous light on the circumstances of the Indigenous communities presently living in northern Ontario. John Long's understanding of both Western-based knowledge and Indigenous Knowledge, as well as the written and the oral traditions have enabled him to write a piece that will forever change our understanding of Treaty No. 9. This book is a labour of love which succeeds brilliantly." David T. McNab, Professor of Native Studies, York University

What I was hoping for when I bought the book was to gain a better insight into the five "W"s with respect to this Treaty. Unfortunately, the author buries the reader under a plethora of names within the first chapter that leaves the reader confused as to "who's on first". The book is extremely biased and does not in my opinion, provide a neutral foundation upon which the reader can come to his/her own conclusion as to the integrity with which this Treaty was handled from start to finish. The book is strewn with interpretation of handwritten personal notes recorded by Dominion Officials whereas verbal, non-recorded statements made by Native persons are purported to be the true interpretation of events that took place. I finished reading the book and felt perhaps I'd been too critical in my review so I read it a second time. My thoughts remain the same, and I cannot recommend this book to anyone. In fairness however, I'll donate it to our Public Library so that others can formulate their own opinion.
