We Were Not the Savages: Collision between European and Native American Civilizations

Paul, Daniel N. We Were Not the Savages: Collision between European and Native American Civilizations. Halifax, NS: Fernwood, 2006. Print book.



Paul provides a comprehensive history of the destruction of Indigenous peoples in North America with a particular focus on the experience of the Mi’kmaq. Using historical documents and records written by British colonizers, Paul proves unequivocally the genocidal intentions of Great Britain and the horrific methods of extermination employed against the indigenous populations. Paul’s book demands acknowledgement of this genocidal legacy and justice from Canadian and American settlers.
