About this product
- DescriptionFar Off Metal River examines how explorer Samuel Hearne's account of the alleged 1771 Bloody Falls massacre in the Central Arctic has shaped ongoing colonization and ecomic exploitation of the North. As Emilie Cameron demonstrates, the Arctic has for centuries been treated like a blank page onto which a long line of explorers, missionaries, anthropologists, resource companies, and politicians have inscribed stories that serve their own interests. These stories have played a central role in shaping the region, including efforts to open the North to industrial resource extraction. Consequently, Qablunaat (n-Inuit, n-Indigeus people) have a responsibility to question their relationships with the North and rtherners, first by placing these stories within their proper historical, geographical, and social context, and then by developing new understandings and new relationships that reflect the actual political, cultural, ecomic, environmental, and social landscapes of the contemporary Arctic.landscapes of the contemporary Arctic.
