(Digital) History of Treaties

 In a brief YouTube from York University, William Wicken discusses the impetus of his book The Colonization of Micmaw Memory, recent winner of the John A. Macdonald Prize, and the treaty litigation over aboriginal rights in the Maritimes early in the twentieth century. (h/t voxhistorica)
