Frances Widdowson & Albert Howard, "Disrobing the Aboriginal Industry" (2008)

The subtitle for this book is "The Deception Behind Indigenous Cultural Preservation."

This book is tough to read. Widdowson and Howard are not gentle in their criticism of aboriginal activists, government negotiators, academics, and the sundry hangers-on that speak in favour of a mythical 'golden' state of nature for aboriginals, and economic, social, and political solutions for contemporary Canadian problems based on that 'golden' myth.

More to follow.
