A propos de cet article

Language: English . Brand New Book. In 1771, Samuel Hearne, an employee of the Hudson s Bay Company, set off with a group of Dene guides in search of a Far Off Metal River in the Central Arctic, rumored to be rich in copper. Twenty-four years later, Hearne s account of his journey was published, along with a graphic description of the Bloody Falls massacre, an alleged attack by his guides on a camp of sleeping Inuit. In Far Off Metal River, author Emilie Cameron explores how Hearne s account of the massacre has shaped the ongoing colonization and economic exploitation of the North. As Cameron demonstrates, the Arctic has for centuries been treated like a blank page onto which a long line of explorers, missionaries, anthropologists, resource companies, and politicians have inscribed stories that serve their own interests. These stories have in turn played a central role in shaping the region, including efforts to open the North to industrial resource extraction. Consequently, Qablunaat (non-Inuit, non-Indigenous people) have a responsibility to question their relationships with the North and northerners, first by placing these stories within their proper historical, geographical, and social context and then by developing new understandings and new relationships that reflect the actual political, cultural, economic, environmental, and social landscapes of the contemporary Arctic.

A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

Far Off Metal River examines how explorer Samuel Hearne?s account of the alleged 1771 ?Bloody Falls massacre? in the Central Arctic has shaped ongoing colonization and economic exploitation of the North.

As Emilie Cameron demonstrates, the Arctic has for centuries been treated like a blank page onto which a long line of explorers, missionaries, anthropologists, resource companies, and politicians have inscribed stories that serve their own interests. These stories have played a central role in shaping how the region?s people have been, and continue to be, treated. They have also been used to justify opening the North to industrial resource extraction. Consequently, Qablunaat (non-Inuit, non-Indigenous people) have a responsibility to question their myths about the North, first by placing them within their proper historical, geographical, and social context and then by developing new understandings that reflect the actual political, cultural, economic, environmental, and social landscapes of the contemporary Arctic.

Synopsis:

Drawing on Samuel Hearne's gruesome account of an alleged massacre at Bloody Falls in 1771, Emilie Cameron reveals how Qablunaat (non-Inuit, non-Indigenous people) have used stories about the Arctic for over two centuries as a tool to justify ongoing colonization and economic exploitation of the North. Rather than expecting Inuit to counter these narratives with their own stories about their homeland, Cameron argues that it is the responsibility of Qablunaat to develop new relationships with northerners?ones grounded in the political, cultural, economic, environmental, and social landscapes of the contemporary Arctic.
