Wrestling with Colonialism on Steroids

Quebec Inuit Fight for Their Homeland

Auteur/ Illustrateur / Sous la direction de : Zebedee Nungak

For decades, the Inuit of northern Québec were among the most neglected people in Canada. It took The Battle of James Bay, 1971-1975, for the governments in Québec City and Ottawa to wake up to the disgrace. This is the inside story by one of the negotiators of how the young Inuit took action when Québec began construction on the giant James Bay hydro project. They fought in court and at the negotiation table for an accord that effectively became Canada’s first land-claims agreement. Accompanied by the author’s essays on Nunavik history.
