Two New Resources for Researchers
Our Homes are Bleeding Digital Collection
The Our Homes Are Bleeding Digital Collection has grown out of the stories of cut-off lands in British Columbia. These stories are a part of the history of the reserve system in Canada, aboriginal title and rights and First Nations resistance to colonial assertion of land title. The digital collection draws together several types of primary materials. The records of the Royal Commission on Indian Affairs in British Columbia (McKenna-McBride Commission, 1913 - 1916) include transcripts of testimonies given to the Commission, photographs and maps. Additional historical records, including maps, reports, correspondence, newspaper articles, photographs, and audio and video clips, document the continual assertion of aboriginal title and rights. Resource lists, narrative essays, a student webquest and teachers’ resources have been developed to support the use of the collection.
Stolen Lands, Broken Promises: Researching the Indian Land Question in British Columbia, Second Edition
Stolen Lands, Broken Promises is a practical, hands-on research manual for Indigenous community members wanting to conduct research on a variety of issues affecting traditional territory and reserve lands in British Columbia. It guides researchers through the processes of planning and successfully completing lands-related research projects that have a strong historical component. The manual is also available in hard-copy form at a cost of $25.00 (plus shipping). To order, contact the UBCIC Research Department at <research at ubcic.bc.ca> or 604-684-0231.
