Abstract

Don Mitchell reviews the book 'Making Native Space,' by Cole Harris. Cole Harris dedicates Making Native Space to Gilbert Malcolm Sproat. Indeed, the tale that Harris tells begins with the story of Sproat and his compatriots forcefully removing a band of Aht, or Nuu-chah-nulth, people from their lands at the head of the Alberni Canal. Cole Harris dedicates Making Native Space to Gilbert Malcolm Sproat. Indeed, the tale that Harris tells begins with the story of Sproat and his compatriots forcefully removing a band of Aht, or Nuu-chah-nulth, people from their lands at the head of the Alberni Canal. If Gilbert Malcolm Sproat stands as a synechdoche in Cole Harris' work, then it is for just this kind of a geography, just this kind of a vision of how a more just world can be constructed out of the often ugly realities of the past.
