A review of Thomas King’s The Inconvenient Indian: A Curious Account of Native People in North America (2012). King (1943-) has Cherokee, Greek and German ancestry. I find he sometimes contradicts himself, but some of his recommendations are constructive.
A review of some aspects of the blog “Six Nations (Haudenosaunee) & the Halidmand Tract: Beliefs Versus Facts.” DeYo, the blog author, is a resident of Haldimand County in Ontario, Canada. His kinship includes (among others) Delaware, Mohawk and Tyendinaga. He comments on “unresolved land disputes” between the Canadian government and the Haudenosaunee.
Caledonia, Ontario is near the Six Nations of the Grand River reserve in Southern Ontario. There have been ongoing tensions between the two communities relating to Six Nations land claims. My post deals with a dispute in 2012.
I compare the Canadian government’s multiculturalism and Aboriginal policies. I see similarities between Western University political science professor Salim Mansur’s concerns about multiculturalism and the pro-Palestinian/anti-Jewish elements elements of the Caledonia, Ontario land claims dispute.
