Description

"In this book, Professor D.N. Sprague tells why the Metis did not receive the land that was supposed to be theirs under the Manitoba Act...Sprague offers many examples of the methods used, such as legislation justifying the sale of the land allotted to Metis children without any of the safeguards ordinarily required in connection with transactions with infants. Then there were powers of attorny, tax sales--any number of stratgems could be used, and were--to see that the land intended for the Metis and their families went to others. All branches of the government participated. It is a shameful tale, but one that must be told." -- from the foreword by Thomas R. Berger
