|Summary, etc.:||"An illustrated edition of the award-winning, bestselling Canadian classic, featuring over 150 new images that add colour and context to this extraordinary work. Since its publication in 2012, The Inconvenient Indian has become a Canadian classic. At once a history and a subversion of history, this book has launched a national conversation about what it means to be "Indian" in North America, and the relationship between Natives and non-Natives in the centuries since the two first encountered each other. This new edition reaches further. Through the inclusion of hundreds of images, from art and logos to archival images and monuments, The Inconvenient Indian Illustrated reveals the evolution of how Native peoples have been seen, understood, represented and propagandized in North America. With the aid of these powerful visuals, the brilliant Thomas King refashions old stories about historical events and figures, takes a sideways look at film and pop culture, relates his own complex experiences with activism and articulates a deep and revolutionary understanding of the cumulative effects of ever-shifting laws and treaties on Native peoples and lands. This is a book both timeless and timely, burnished with anger yet tempered by wit, and ultimately a hard-won offering of hope--a sometimes inconvenient but nonetheless indispensable account for all of us, seeking to understand how we might tell a new story for the future."--|
