When thinking of places to research North American Indigenous history, London, England may not immediately spring to mind.
But that's exactly what Coll Thrush, a University of British Columbia professor, examines in his latest book, Indigenous London.
The Crown's fraught relationship with Indigenous peoples from Canada, the United States, New Zealand and Australia has left its marks on the British capital. The book, to be released later this month, re-frames London's history through an Indigenous lens. It's punctuated with walking tours of the city and Thrush's own poetry.
"Even if the city has forgotten its imperial past, Indigenous people haven't," Thrush told rabble.ca.
