Summary:
"The 1990 Oka Crisis is considered a defining moment in Native-Canadian relations.

Abstract:

"The 1990 Oka Crisis is considered a defining moment in Native-Canadian relations. Contrary to popular belief, it was not an isolated event but rather the 300-year long convergence of two distinct cultures that culminated in a violent clash in the microcosm of Oka and included the domestic deployment of the Canadian Forces, 4,500 strong."

"Drawing on a strikingly wide range of hitherto untapped historical and primary sources, including interviews and government documents secured through the Access to Information Act, Oka: A Convergence of Cultures and the Canadian Forces dispels the common mythology and disinformation surrounding the causes and events of the Oka Crisis. Winegard highlights the relevance of Oka, as an integral part of Canadian history, towards the formation of government policy and the active participation of Indigenous Canadians in their ongoing effort to shape and alter their social and political realities within Canada and their resistance to cultural assimilation. This innovative study also engages in a detailed probe of the most controversial and volatile Canadian Forces internal security operation of the twentieth century."--Jacket.
