About the Author:

Peter Kulchyski grew up in Bissett, northern Manitoba, and was one of the few non-Aboriginal students to attend a government-run residential high school. He obtained his undergraduate degree at the University of Winnipeg, and has a Master’s and PhD from York University, Toronto, Ontario, Canada. He is considered one of the senior Canadian scholars in Native Studies. He has received numerous awards for his scholarship in Native Studies. He has published numerous books on aboriginal issues, such as Like the Sound of a Drum: Aboriginal Cultural Politics in Denendeh and Nunavut (University of Manitoba Press 2005), which won the 2005 Alexander Kennedy Isbister Award for Non-Fiction at the Manitoba Brave New Words Book Awards, he co-edited In the Words of the Elders: Aboriginal Cultures in Transition (UTP 1999), and is the co-author of Tammarnitt [Mistakes]: Inuit Relocation in the Eastern Arctic (UBC Press 1994), which won the Erminie Wheeler-Voegelin Prize of the American Society for Ethnohistory.

Review:

As a visual medium brought closer to an auditory experience, the stories told in The Red Indians are persuasive because they unapologetically rest on Kulchyski's authority. Kulchyski's episodes balance brevity with constructive detail and, taken together, cover a great deal of history and territory. By detailing the points of continuity that link these stories from early "contact" to the present day, Kulchyski advances his central argument that the First Nations peoples are foundational to the Canadian state. -- Madelaine Jacobs, Canadian Literature
