1. In This is an Honour Song, Leanne Simpson and Kiera L. Ladner argue that “to the Kanien’kehaka (Mohawk) people of Kanehsata:ke, who were living up to their responsibilities to take care of their lands, this was neither a “crisis” at Oka, nor was it about the non-Native town of Oka. This was about 400 years of colonial injustice” (1). Make an informed argument about why it is important to understand conflicts in Indigenous-Settler relations in their social context using frequent concrete references to course material (with citations and also page numbers) to demonstrate your argument.

2. Does the infamous “Face to Face” photograph adequately explain the Oka “crisis” in its social context? Why/why not? Make an informed argument that draws on ‌‌‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‍‍‍‌‌‌‍concrete examples from course material to substantiate your argument. Be attentive to the different “perspectives” that we examined in Unit 2. Especially the role of the media in the Oka conflict and in Indigenous-settler relations generally.

3. Some have argued that the Oka conflict fundamentally changed Canada forever and put the country on the path to reconciliation. Others have argued that little has actually changed in Indigenous-Settler relations since the summer of 1990. Make an informed argument about the legacy of the Oka conflict. Also, comment on Canada’s commitment to reconciliation today using frequent concrete examples from course materials.
