Description

For King and Kanata: Canadian Indians and the First World War by Timothy C Winegard, a former officer in the Canadian Forces, presents a comprehensive history of Aboriginal peoples and the First World War. The book examines the wartime experience of First Nations, Inuit, and MÚtis people both in active service and at home. Chapter seven focuses on the contributions of individuals such as Francis Pegahmagabow, Tom Longboat, and Edith Anderson Monture. The book presents the larger picture of Aboriginal peoples and their relationships to the British in earlier conflicts, and celebrates their overwhelming contributions to the Canadian war effort despite many challenges.
