New Governors, Same Colonialism
From: Warrior Life
The Introduction of Warrior Life succinctly articulates the damage done to First Nations peoples in Canada through the process of colonization by the Canadian government, and outlines how that process continues into the present, perpetuating a false narrative of Canada. She explains the goals of her writing work as illuminating the myth of a benign Canada that is currently still killing Indigenous people today.
