Seen But Not Seen **FULL** with waitlist

Book Study: Influential Canadians and the First Nations from the 1840’s to Today by CALL member DONALD B. SMITH


Seen But Not Seen explores the history of Indigenous marginalization and why non-Indigenous Canadians failed to recognize Indigenous societies and cultures as worthy of respect. Approaching the issue biographically, Donald B. Smith presents the commentaries of sixteen influential Canadians - including John A. Macdonald, George Grant, and Emily Carr - who spoke extensively on Indigenous subjects. Supported by documentary records spanning over nearly two centuries, the book covers fresh ground in the history of settler-Indigenous relations.

Participants will discuss the first 6 chapters at the first meeting followed by the remaining 3 chapters and the epilogue at the second meeting. At the 3rd meeting, Don Smith will join the group to field questions and share some of his new findings.

Donald B. Smith, professor emeritus of history at the University of Calgary, is one of Canada’s most renowned historians, having written extensively on aboriginal Canada, Quebec, and the history of Calgary and Southern Alberta.
