Description
"Examines the consequences of assimilation and marginalization among Native people across Canada, beginning with the legacy of the residential school era. After the schools were closed, assimilation attempts did not end. A social marginalization of Native people, especially women, continued; they became easy targets for racially motivated violence. Investigates killers like John Martin Crawford and Robert Pickton who preyed upon Native victims, as well as the treatment of Aboriginals by police and the justice system."
