About this product
- Description<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC -//W3C//DTD HTML 3.2//EN > With Good Intentions examines the joint efforts of Aboriginal people and individuals of European ancestry to counter injustice in Canada when colonization was at its height, from the mid-nineteenth to the early twentieth century. These people recognized colonial wrongs and worked together in a variety of ways to right them, but they could t stem the tide of European-based exploitation. The book is neither an apologist text r an attempt to argue that some colonizers were simply well intentioned. Almost all those considered here -- teachers, lawyers, missionaries, activists -- had as their overall goal the Christianization and civilization of Canada's First Peoples. By discussing examples of Euro-Canadians who worked with Aboriginal peoples, With Good Intentions brings to light some of the lesser-kwn complexities of colonization.
