Reconciliation: All Our Relations, Kelly Laurila 2016 Wilfrid Laurier University

Reconciliation: All Our Relations, Kelly Laurila

Consensus

The author shares the national, community (local) and individual discourses taking place as they pertain to the reconciliation process that is happening with Indigenous and Settler peoples in Canada. Importantly, the author sheds light on a multitude of local efforts of reconciliation happening that have not yet made it to academic discourses and publications, but which could be instrumental in contributing to reconciliation. A key component emphasized in these reconciliation efforts and which could be the catalyst for change, is the importance of relationships. Stemming from an Indigenous epistemological perspective, the creation of positive relationships with others and ‘all our ...

Instruments Of War: A Canadian Musician In A Rhode Island Regiment, Ryan M. Nadeau 2016 Gettysburg College

Instruments Of War: A Canadian Musician In A Rhode Island Regiment, Ryan M. Nadeau

The Gettysburg Compiler: On the Front Lines of History

Canada! America’s hat! Our friendly little brother to the north. The home of hockey and Tim Horton’s and your home, too, when that other political party elects their crazy candidate. All jokes aside, the United States has long had a close relationship with our northern neighbor, and the Civil War proved no exception. An estimated 30,000 to 50,000 Canadians fought during the war, typically on the side of the Union due to their geographic proximity and cultural sympathies. Of that number, approximately 5,000 were killed. [excerpt]

Femininity And Higher Education: Women At Ontario Universities, 1890 To 1920, Marilla McCargar 2016 The University of Western Ontario

Femininity And Higher Education: Women At Ontario Universities, 1890 To 1920, Marilla Mccargar

Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

This dissertation examines the experiences of women studying at six institutions of higher education from 1890 to 1920. The universities include Queen’s University in Kingston, The University of Western Ontario in London, the University of Toronto and its affiliates Victoria University, University College, and Trinity College in Toronto. While pioneering women who attended universities in the 1880s were opposed by people who believed a belief that women’s intellects were inferior to men’s, women in this study faced the belief that by engaging in the “masculine” pursuit of higher education they risked their future as wives and mothers ...

Review: Bootleggers And Borders: The Paradox Of Prohibition On A Canada-Us Borderland, Kevin Allen Leonard

History

Voters in Oregon and Washington approved measures that would end the production and sale of alcoholic beverages in 1914, and Idaho followed suit in 1916. Wartime patriotism prompted British Columbia voters to approve a referendum against the sale of alcohol in 1917. In 1918 and 1919, the legislatures of forty-five of the forty-eight U.S. states ratified the Eighteenth Amendment to the Constitution, which prohibited the manufacture, sale, transportation, importation, and exportation of intoxicating liquors. A year after prohibition went into effect in the United States, British Columbia became the second Canadian province to abandon prohibition in favor of a ...

An Examination In The Evolution Of Iroquois Lacrosse, Christopher P. Root

History Theses

Once a niche sport to Canada and the northeastern United States, lacrosse has become the fastest growing sport in North America. Though it was played for hundreds of years by the indigenous peoples of this continent prior to the arrival of Europeans, the native roots of the game have not been truly appreciated on a wide scale until recent years. After the adaption and modernization of the game in the mid nineteenth century by Victorian Canadians, the inventors of lacrosse would see over a century of exclusion and discrimination. Native Americans were the victims of rules that were designed to ...
