Native Game, The

Settler Perceptions of Indian/Settler Relations in Central Labrador

Evelyn Plaice (Author) 

"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.
