The Human Rights Research and Education Centre (HRREC) is pleased to present the Ottawa launch of the book:

VALLEY OF THE BIRDTAIL: An Indian Reserve, a White Town, and the Road to Reconciliation

Divided by a beautiful valley and 150 years of racism, the town of Rossburn and the Waywayseecappo Indian reserve in Manitoba have been neighbours nearly as long as Canada has been a country. Their story reflects much of what has gone wrong in relations between Indigenous Peoples and non-Indigenous Canadians. It also offers, in the end, an uncommon measure of hope. Valley of the Birdtail is about how two communities became separate and unequal—and what it means for the rest of us.

Please join the authors Andrew Stobo Sniderman and Douglas Sanderson (Amo Binashii) for the launch of their bestselling book.
