Myths and Myth-Truths About the Colonization of British Columbia


Course description

Starting from the point of view that popular history is a mix of truth and stories “that would be convenient if they were true”, this presentation takes a fresh look at the standard history of British Columbia. The focus will be on the history of settler-Indigenous relations—the stories that explorers and settlers told, and that our history books and museums still tell about Indigenous people and the arrival of Europeans. Stories considered will include: the first contact between Europeans and Indigenous people, the rights of Europeans to colonize a territory already occupied, Indigenous economies, and treaty and land title negotiations.
