The Native Game
Settler Perceptions of Indian/Settler Relations in Central Labrador
"Indians" are woven into the conversations of the Settlers who live on one side of the settlement of Northwest River. Ostensibly, these appear to be references to the Naskapi who are on the other side--a river runs between the two communities. However, Evelyn Plaice demonstrates that talking about "Indians" is a way for Settlers to speak of delicate, sometimes controversial aspects of their own settlement, its history and its factions.
"This little book is well-organized and thoughtfully argued. ..I recommend this study to anyone with an interest in small community dynamics, and marginally to those interested in Anglo/Indian interaction. "- Joseph Vogel, American Indian Quarterly
