David-Cree, Katsitsenhawe Linda (2004) Would you like to hear a story? : Mohawk youth narratives on the role of the history of Quebec and Canada on indigenous identity and marginality. Masters thesis, Concordia University.
- Accepted Version
This study examined how Onkwehón:we (Original Peoples), Kanien'kehà:ka (People of the Flint) young people living in Kanehsatà:ke perceived Quebec and Canadian history and Indigenous histories. It presents an analysis of the teaching of the history of Quebec and Canada, a compulsory course to graduate in Quebec. It is my position that past and present teachings have marginalized and silenced the Indigenous voice and identity. The course that is presently taught will be analyzed with a major glance back in time to earlier such courses; it will build from that to tell the stories of those who have been and perhaps still are being marginalized and silenced through an inaccurate and inadequate retelling of history. That is, I will present the perspectives of Kanien'kehà:ka Peoples themselves on the course. I will then draw the past and present narratives together while looking forward, with hope to better times.
