A Missing Genocide and the Demonization of its Heroes By Tom Swanky

Based in part on its University of Victoria originated website “Klatsassin and the Chilcotin War,” the Great Unsolved Mysteries project won the 2008 Governor General's Award for... More > popularizing Canadian history and a MERLOT award from the California State University project on Multimedia Education Resources for Learning and Online Teaching. It is disappointing, then, to find that “Klatsassin and the Chilcotin War” makes no attempt at balance, objectivity or accuracy. Instead, it flagrantly disrespects the Tsilhqot'in perspective and buries its few Tsilhqot'in selections under a disproportionate barrage of unimportant detail. Just as astounding, as this Review documents at length, the website disregards any standard of care for accuracy from even the written record. Does the acclaim given this flawed production reflect a willingness of academics to abandon all discipline on the Internet, or does it reflect an anti-­indigenous colonial legacy still alive and well at Canadian universities?< Less
The True Story of Canada's "War" of Extermination on the Pacific By Tom Swanky

At the inception of colonial rule on Canada’s Pacific Coast, natives “universally believed” Governor Douglas used smallpox as a weapon to kill them in lieu of treaties or paying for... More > land. Yet Canadian historians routinely dismiss this profound allegation without mention. In Canada’s greatest catastrophe, perhaps 100,000 B.C. natives died from smallpox during 1862/63. Before then, the First Nations were still sovereign. Afterward, British Columbia subjugated and dispossessed the depopulated First Nations through small wars billed as policing and by hanging several natives resisting colonialism. This is a detective story. It begins with the last action of the smallpox period, the hanging of five Tsilhqot’in Chiefs ambushed at a peace conference in 1864. The book then follows the smallpox trail back though the Tsilhqot’in War seeking its origin. It describes the smallpox carnage everywhere while seeking evidence of deliberate disease spreading. Does this trail lead to the Governor’s office as alleged?< Less

In December 1803, the South Carolina General Assembly voted to reopen the African slave trade, which operated in full force until it was federally banned in 1808. Approximately 75,000... More > slaves––nearly one-fifth of all slaves imported to North America––were imported during this short four-year span. Immediately before the trade reopened, the Medical Society of South Carolina advised state officials to relax quarantine measures for yellow fever. This advice was issued at a precipitous moment during an ongoing national debate over the contagiousness of yellow fever and whether or not it was imported. This thesis examines the intersection between private interest and the state through the lens of public health. It argues that the Medical Society of South Carolina––under the direction of Dr. David Ramsay––placed public health at risk in order to facilitate the slave trade by relaxing quarantine measures for yellow fever prior to its reopening.< Less
