The Last Stand of the Lubicon Cree

For over a decade, the Lubicon Cree of northern Alberta have been leaders in the struggle for native rights in Canada. Their chief, Bernard Ominayak, has become a familiar figure on the evening news, and their civil disobedience campaigns, particularly their call to boycott the 1988 Olympics in Calgary, and their dramatic six-day occupation of oil fields on their traditional lands have received international attention. Drawing extensively from tribe files, John Goddard traces the history of the Lubicon struggle. With urgency and compelling insight, The Last Stand of the Lubicon Cree illuminates the current crisis in Native affairs.
