The Trial, the Treaty, and the Terror: Settler Colonialism in Canada Virtual Public Talk #2

Settler Colonialism in Canada Virtual Public Talk #2
The Trial, the Treaty, and the Terror: The Battleford Hangings and the Rise of the Settler State
James Daschuk, Faculty of Kinesiology, University of Regina

The largest mass execution in Canadian history took place in Battleford in 1885. The event was designed to create the maximum amount of fear in the First Nations population and signaled the imposition of a new and draconian order in the relationship between Indigenous people and the state. A century and a half later, the hangings and their impact still reverberate in the land we know as Saskatchewan.

--

This is the second in a series of public virtual talks around the Settler Colonialism in Canada: Perspectives, Comparisons, Cases project, which will also include a workshop, conference, graduate symposium, and publications gathering researchers from a variety of backgrounds. These virtual public talks are meant to act as an ongoing and living acknowledgement of the historical, existing, and possible relationships to the land and on the land.

The project is led by Emily Grafton (U Regina), David MacDonald (Guelph), and Jérôme Melançon (U Regina)
