African Nova Scotian-Mi'kmaw relations.


African Nova Scotian-Mi'kmaw relations.

Madden, Paula C.

Fernwood Publishing


112 pages




Both dispossessed of their lands by white colonial governments, African Nova Scotians and Mi'kmaq First Nations people have often been lumped together in the efforts of recent national and provincial governments to deal with the results of those dispossessions. Madden argues that the experience of African Nova Scotians cannot be understood without understanding what happened first to indigenous people. Lack of this understanding has caused conflicts between the two communities, she suggests, often to their mutual detriment. Distributed in the US by Independent Publishers Group.
