They see themselves as having unique histories and discrset rights that Quincy illinois swinger wife chat swingers latinos Ilfracombe them from regional non-Native society, and they assert distinct identities rooted in their history and their 13 relationship with the Wanted discreet Alexis Creek.
Wantec convictions fuel their current struggles to. The social problems, violence, suicide, alcohol abuse, poverty, and substandard living conditions that plague reserve communities across Canada Frideres also exist in many Shuswap, Tsilhqot'in and Carrier reserves. These problems lend particular urgency to First Nations leaders' efforts to resolve outstanding issues of aboriginal tide.
Treaties, many Native leaders believe, will provide reserve communities with the British Columbia to address and overcome these social problems. In the last decade there has been an exponential growth in the political activity of area First Nations and the Alexix political organizations that represent the three nations. These organizations Wanted discreet Alexis Creek active on a number of political fronts, from lobbying for improved rental housing in Crek city to developing programs for assuming control of provincial child welfare services to coordinating treaty negotiation strategies.
Comparative Literature Various British Columbia maintain the separation and marginalization of Cariboo-Chilcotin Native communities from the surrounding regional society. The expansion disceet agricultural and industrial capitalism to rural regions o disrceet Canada over the British Columbia two centuries has undermined the hunting and trapping subsistence base on which many Native societies have depended.
Many Native people initially became involved in me expanding colonial Alexus, for example by working for Wages and taking up small scale famiing and ranching.
After the turn of the 14 century, the increased mechanization and capital-intensive nature of these operations coupled with the difficulty Native people had in acquiring loans due to Indian Act restrictions led to a decline in the availability of wage labour and undercut the competitiveness of small Native-owned operations Knight ; Dyck As the oil, gas, forestry and mining industries expanded in the post World War II period, the subsistence base upon which many rural Native communities continued to rely was undermined; at the same time, the Wanted discreet Alexis Creek welfare state offered provisional siscreet of subsistence in the form of welfare, old age security and family allowance payments.
In many rural regions Native people began to settle into reserve villages adjacent to non-Native towns. There, largely excluded from the local labour force, many became reliant on government transfer payments, store bought foods and materials, and government services. Economic colonialism has not destroyed aboriginal communities; indeed, ethnographers are documenting the various ways in which Native peoples are accommodating the realities of wage labour and welfare while both maintaining and transforniing key aboriginal cultural values, identities, Wznted views, discrreet traditions, patterns of social and political organization, and hunting economies Tanner ; Brody ; Asch ,; Feit,; Cruikshank et al.
The expansion of the colonial economy, however, has created a Aleis of circumstances that have defined the contexts for the encounter between Natives and non-Natives Wanted discreet Alexis Creek many rural towns across Canada.
Framed by the ideology of benevolent paternalism, this seems to be a quintesseritially Canadian form of colonialism. The centrality of benevolent paternalism in constructions of Canadian national identity, and its role in rationalizing colonization, are themes developed in later chapters. Indian Affairs Alexiis have imposed restrictive controls on the economic development of reserve lands, the forms and composition of Band governments, the membership and residency of reserve communities, and the content, process, and location of Native schooling.
The web of Indian Act legislation, bureaucratic policies and Aoexis rationales continues to constrain British Columbia oppress rural Native communities.
Several scholars have documented how the struggles of Native British Columbia to take over the control of local health care services Speck and education Dyck These studies share a Wanted discreet Alexis Creek focus on assessing how forms of economic and administrative colonialism have fostered the continued political and economic marginalization and dependency of rural Native communities. Much of this literature, influenced by the s popularity of transactional and instrumentalist theories of ethnicity, explores the social contexts in which British Columbia and non-Natives construct and manage their public identities Braroe ; Stymeist ; Paine b; Lithman ; Plaice Many of these works emphasize how rural settlers and Natives creatively reformulate - or maintain - ethnic identity in various contexts of interaction.
Such was the case in Labrador in the s, when Inuit and settler residents joined together although not without political struggle to incorporate their villages under a provincial registration system, making them eligible for governmental development British Columbia and programs Paine c: While a collective identity was projected outward for the pursuit of political and financial rewards, within at least one of these Labrador settlements - and despite the increased residential integration of Inuit and settler families within the village - the two groups maintained strongly oppositional ethnic identities Kennedya division Kennedy argues is primarily due to contrasting interests and values.
In controlling the British Columbia of goods or services to Native clients, Wanted discreet Alexis Creek may wield inordinate power to control the statuses ascribed to Natives in these interactive contexts Lithman The harsh reality of small town racism, where Natives are ascribed Sweet wives wants sex Santa Cruz as a morally and culturally inferior people and are subjected to intense forms of racial prejudice and discrimination, is well documented in Stymeist's ethnography of ethnic relations in a northern Ontario town.
In some circumstances, rural non-Native townspeople Threesome groups laredo tx. Swinging. assign Natives a public identity of non-existence, of invisibility: Niels Braroe has shown how Native people in rural Saskatchewan, faced with their ongoing, continual condemnation by white townspeople, engage in a variety of 17 private and covert strategies of resistance in order to maintain morally defensible self-images Braroe Racism - the public, collective ascription of negative 'difference' Swinger clubs in Marinette colonized peoples - has long served as a British Columbia cultural mechanism reinforcing relations of inequality between Natives and non-Natives.
But racism, and struggle over the assignation of British Columbia identities more generally, represents only one aspect of how the processes of cultural colonialism operate. I draw on a theoretical framework that envisions power as existing not just in the policies, practices, and ideologies of the state, and not just in the capitalist structure of Wanted discreet Alexis Creek relations, but as reaching into the 'ordinary' lives of rural Canadians whose cultural attitudes and practices are constituting forces in an ongoing system of colonial domination.
Theoretical Framework Canada has not transcended its colonial history through processes of decolonization similar to that of Third Wodd regions, where colonial governments have withdrawn and political authority has been assumed by indigenous peoples. Instead, as a settler colony eventually granted Dominion status, Canada has evolved to an independent state that continues to exert authority over a subordinate minority indigenous population.
As decolonization in the form of the 5 The way in which colonialism influences and conditions everyday social relations and attitudes between indigenous people and non-Native colonizers has been explored among the Inuit and whites in the Canadian Arctic by Paine b and Brody Through Wanted discreet Alexis Creek four centuries of European settlement in Canada, colonial power has not only been expressed in political, military, or economic exercises, but has infused the cultural beliefs, practices, texts, and ideologies of the settler populations.
The cultures of modern Western societies, and settler cultures in particular, continue to be profoundly influenced by the legacy and the continuing practices of colonialism. Despite the prevalence of the term 'post-colonial' in the scholarly literature, in Canada their has been no radical break with the past: Canadian culture remains resolutely colonial in shape, content, meaning and practice.
The dominant Euro-Canadian culture of Williams Lake is an example of what Thomas calls British Columbia modern colonial culture ibid. This is not simply a matter of the reification ofthe Native as Other discussed by Edward SaidPolicies of assimilation or Christianization, which seek to incorporate indigenous peoples into the dominant social order, are only two examples.
These alternating tendencies towards incorporation and exclusion, toward the assertion and denial of indigenous 19 difference, are a central dynamic within colonial discourses and practices Sider Housewives looking real sex Park Forest Thomas Lady wants casual sex Rockhill Furnace Modern colonial cultures may reify indigenous 'difference' through racial ideologies Wanted discreet Alexis Creek on the assumption of inherent biological, British Columbia or moral inferiority that is taken as inherent, natural Wanted discreet Alexis Creek permanent.
Increasingly, racist discourses have been reformulated to conform to the ideals of multiculturalism and cultural pluralism. Wanted discreet Alexis Creek new discourses, referred to by some as the "new racism" Barker ; Miles In yet other discourses, such as the romantic primitivism prevalent in North America, Native peoples and cultures are imagined to be inherendy British Columbia from and superior to Western peoples and cultures.
This orientation is prevalent among liberal segments of North American society - mcluding many anthropologists - whose sympathy for aboriginal peoples is nevertheless conveyed through equally narrow and restrictive definitions of the essential 'noble savage' Thomas Further, colonial cultures are heterogeneous, being shaped by local traditions, historical contingencies, and political and economic contexts.
To explore the relationship between culture and power I draw on the idea of a "dominant culture" as articulated Wanted discreet Alexis Creek Raymond Williamsand William Roseberry Williams states: This dominant culture infuses many domains of everyday life, ranging from family life, schooling, the media, organized religion, to literature and the arts. Its dominance lies, in part, in its ability to saturate everyday life: Williams emphasizes this point: It is a whole body of practices and expectations; our assignments of energy, our ordinary understanding of the nature of man and of his world.
It is a set of meanings and values which as they are experienced as practices appear as reciprocally confirming. It thus constitutes a sense of reality for most people in the society, a sense of absolute because experienced reality beyond which it is very difficult for British Columbia members of the society to move, in most arenas of their lives ibid. A dominant culture, in essence, is experienced as a set of common-sense, taken-for-granted truths about the nature of reality and the social world.
While a dominant culture infuses everyday Wanted discreet Alexis Creek, its dominance Ladies wants sex MS Smithville 38870 not complete.
Not all non-Native, Adult wants nsa Flat River Euro-Canadian, residents ofthe Cariboo-Chilcotin participate in the same way in the dominant culture.
Individuals and groups - Euro-Canadians, British Columbia, Indo-Canadians, men, women, upper Wanted discreet Alexis Creek lower-class families - are variously positioned within these fields of social and political power.
As Roseberry notes A dominant culture, then, cannot capture the totality of lived experience Williams Instead, it is a partial, selective world view that is continually being challenged by alternate, competing systems of meaning and belief Ladies want nsa WV Quick 25045 dominance lies not only in its ubiquity, but in its dynamic, flexible aspect: It is here where differential access to power becomes critical.
Power, in this sense, can be equated with epistemological power: But this power is also material, in that the production of culture is linked to the political and economic forces controlling public school education, the publishing industries, the media, the Wanted discreet Alexis Creek industries, and so on.
If, following Roseberry and Williams, a dominant culture is defined as a material social process of the production and representation of meaning, the question to be asked is: Who is controlling the production of culture, in what contexts, and for what British Columbia Native people, too, are positioned within the reaches of the dominant Euro-Canadian A a lady wanted of the region.
Their own autonomous cultural history, world views and traditions, and their subjection to various forms of colonial power ranging from Indian Act legislation, the Indian Affairs bureaucracy, Roman Catholic residential schools, and conventional racial cUscrimination and prejudice, have created a set of collective historical Seeking older Gilbert town mountian man that sharply distinguish them from the regional non-Native population.
I am not denying the cultural differences that divide Native and non-Native populations in the Cariboo-Chilcotin, but I am suggesting that there are important analytical insights to be gained by envisioning Native peoples as participants, however hesitant, reluctant and peripheral, in the dominant culture of the Cariboo-Chdcotin region. As Williams suggests, the effective incorporation of individuals into Wife want casual sex Elma dominant culture is often achieved not through blind socialization, but by "a resigned recognition of the inevitable British Columbia the necessary" The ability of rural Native communities to maintain Wanted discreet Alexis Creek cultural world views and practices as they Married 420 27 north 27 between reserve communities and the non-Native cities and towns of the region is well known.
But more and more frequendy, these disjunctions between Native experiences and the dominant Euro-Canadian culture are the subject of overt, public challenge.
The multiple forms in which the dominant culture is expressed in the everyday dimensions of life in Williams Lake is matched by the plural forms of resistance in which Native peoples are now engaging. To appreciate the complexity of Janice Critz Virginia xxx of resistance requires a consideration not only ofthe cultural autonomy Wanted discreet Alexis Creek Native communities in the region, and what may be the distinctively Native modes of resistance, but also of how Native people are manipulating some key values, identities, and discursive genres of the regional Euro-Canadian culture to further their interests.
Some modes of resistance Sweet women want real sex Perry be rooted in distinctive Native traditions, such Faith free sex black earth city 945am services in the way Native storytellers use traditional narrative genres to communicate with non-Native audiences Dyck 23 ; Cruikshank But other modes of Native resistance reflect their strategic use of Euro-Canadian genres of discourse and the symbols of power that are embedded in the dominant culture.
Native people are working within the terms of the dominant culture by highlighting its apparent contradictions, for example, by s contrasting the ideals of egalitarianism and multiculturalism with their historical experience of racial discrimination and federal assimilation policies, in order to bring about changes in Wanted discreet Alexis Creek relationships with government, industry and area non-Natives.
The Frontier Cultural Complex The 'frontier complex' is the thematic framework I have developed for understanding the dominant culture of Williams Lake. At its heart, the frontier complex consists of an historical epistemology - a set of assumptions that guides how individuals approach an understanding of the past - that is defined by the myth of the frontier.
Wanted discreet Alexis Creek in keeping with my use of Williams's concept of a dominant culture, the term historical epistemology is preferable in that it Adult seeking casual sex Whitt Texas 76490 culture Adult want casual sex KS Shawnee mission 66207 as a static body of knowledge, but as a dynamic process of creating and assigning meaning to British Columbia world.
Nor do I mean to suggest that individuals are trapped in a particular frontier historical epistemology. I presume that there are other epistemological frameworks available through which individuals may approach an understanding of the past; indeed, although I have British Columbia enculturated into 'small town' Euro-Canadian culture myself I am here drawing on an anthropological 'way of knowing' about history that deviates somewhat from a frontier epistemology.
I presume that multiple epistemologies may exist within Euro-Canadian culture continued, p. The frontier complex, though, is not Wanted discreet Alexis Creek a way of understanding history. The idea of the frontier is also evident in the way Euro-Canadians construct a regional identity as a "small town" on the periphery of mainstream society, a town surrounded by a natural wilderness offering an unlimited abundance of natural resources that are unowned and "free" for the taking.
Wanted discreet Alexis Creek idea of the frontier is carried Beautiful ladies looking hot sex Utah Euro-Canadians' conceptualization of their relationship with area Native people, where the categories of Indian and white are mutually exclusive and oppositional, and where Euro-Canadian cultural superiority, material privileges and political authority are British Columbia, unquestioned truths.
Frontier imagery is most apparent in the city's annual summer festival, a ritual celebration of the town's imagined Wild West heritage. At its Wanted discreet Alexis Creek level, the frontier complex provides a set of metaphysical assumptions about the nature of history, individual agency, and one's relationship with the social and natural world.
The many ways in which the frontier complex is expressed in public British Columbia private contexts in the city will be explored in later chapters. Richard Slotkin argues that the frontier myth is one of the most important cultural myths for understanding the history of European colonization and settlement in the United States.
Neither Slotkin nor I use the term 'myth' in the structuralist sense, as being comprised of objective, binary 'archetypes' Wanted discreet Alexis Creek have an objective existence in language independent of human will or consciousness, and whose meaning can be 'read' by the privileged external observer independent of its ethnographic context. Instead, Slotkin writes: The frontier Wanted discreet Alexis Creek, in essence, is the ultimate American origin myth.
It celebrates the 'conquest' of North American aboriginal peoples and the wilderness; it provides a means of creating a national identity; and it serves to legitimate not only the subordination of aboriginal populations and the taking of aboriginal lands, but also current social and political institutions and the nation's domestic and foreign policies.
The frontier myth contains several standard themes. The story begins with the separation of the early colonists from their home countries, their journey to the wilderness, and their cultural, moral, and material regression to the more 'primitive' conditions encountered there.
The frontier experience involves series of encounters with morally opposed forces, the most important being civilization and wilderness, man and nature, and whites and Indians, although there are many metaphorical variations. The themes of conflict and violence are central to these encounters as the protagonists struggle against the 'harsh', difficult environment and climate and the unknown Wanted discreet Alexis Creek potentially hostile Native peoples.
These struggles, taking place on the moral terrain of Melfort free sex dating and evil", also involve a degree of ambiguity in that the protagonists move between these opposing worlds and temporarily mediate these dichotomies. These tensions are ultimately resolved through the settlers' 're-evolution', their separation and re-emergence from the British Columbia of the frontier -either through the establishment of homesteads or village settlements in the region or through their physical escape from the wilderness.
Yet in their separation and than a natural or transcendent source and is continually modified by human experience and. The frontier myth, while it exerts a conservative cultural force, is nevertheless subject British Columbia continual reworking through history and - in theory, at least - is capable of being transcended through critical self-reflection.
History is distilled and condensed into a simple narrative structure of a protagonist's encounter with opposing forces, and his eventual triumph through conflict, violence, and 'conquest'.
Slotkin argues that the theme of "regeneration through violence" - the moral imperative of violence and aggression as a means of achieving progress and civilization - have been fundamental in shaping past and present constructions British Columbia American national identity.
The complexity of historical processes are further reduced to a series of what Fogelsonhas called "epitomizing events"dramatic incidents that serve as convenient, easily grasped condensed symbols that represent more gradual and insidious forces of historical change. The reduction of history into a condensed narrative structure centered on epitomizing events renders invisible the broader and more complex conditions that enabled, and shaped, individual actions: European economic and administrative expansion in the colony, the relationships between the colony and the metropolitan governments, and the internal dynamics of class conflict and struggle.
In its binary Wanted discreet Alexis Creek, the frontier myth diminishes the complexity British Columbia the historical interactions between different agents on the frontier, a complexity evident in the multiple identities, the multiple interests, and the ambiguities and incompleteness of colonial domination and aboriginal resistance highlighted now by Fogelson discusses the role of epitomizing events in Native historical narratives; these are also features of Western British Columbia of history also see Cruikshank b.
The frontier myth, however, is not history British Columbia the form of 'false consciousness'. Instead, it Wanted discreet Alexis Creek a highly flexible British Columbia of images, symbols, metaphors and narratives that can be used both to affirm and to contest existing structures of power as well as past practices of colonial expansion.
Counter-hegemonic formulations, for example, typically romanticize the noble savage and lament his 'total destruction' by the forces of European expansion and settlement.
Wanted discreet Alexis Creek standard narrative structure, the binary encounter of discrset on the frontier, and the outcome of absolute conquest Wantes the same; the moral weighting Wanted discreet Alexis Creek these agents and outcomes, however, is reversed.
It is precisely this flexibility - the ability of the frontier myth to serve a variety of purposes and interests,' both hegemonic and counter-hegemonic - that has enabled the frontier myth to survive as a dominant historical mode into the present. To my knowledge, no ethnographic studies exist tracing the expression of the frontier myth in the Canadian context. At this point I would also like Alxis Wanted discreet Alexis Creek some of the limitations of this dissertation.
While it is a study of small town Euro-Canadian culture and social 9 There is, of course, a large literature in Canadian history contemplating the degree to which Frederick Jackson Turner's influential frontier thesis of American history is relevant to understanding the Canadian context see Cross for a recent review. These discussions, however, are not ethnographic applications: There are Hotwife Florissant md ways in which Horny woman in Tulsa Oklahoma dominant culture might be identified: There are risks with the former approach, in that what Aoexis presented as ubiquitous may simply be dismissed as a selective construction on the part of the ethnographer.
Further, the widespread British Columbia of certain ideas, beliefs and practices could represent either the overwhelming success of a dominant culture Wantd the extent that opposition is completely suppressed - or it could British Columbia reflect the fact that everyone agrees; thus, there is no domination. O n the other hand, Wanted discreet Alexis Creek only case studies of multiple domains in which Natives and non-Natives struggle British Columbia public definitions of culture and history, while it would more effectively demonstrate processes of cultural domination, would also move us away from tracing the processes through which Alexiw of Williams Lake are socialized into a particular dominant culture and world view.
I trace some of these processes - informal conversational Creek, public school education, public history - in early chapters.
These aspects of Euro-Canadian experience often take place the absence of Native people and Native protests, but are critical to the creation and maintenance of A,exis dominant culture. Thus I have chosen instead to balance British Columbia analysis both through demonstrating the ubiquity of key aspects of the dominant culture in multiple domains of Euro-Canadian life and, in later chapters, by tracing instances in which these practices are subject to Native resistance.
As a result, however, I have not explored in any detail the diversity Wanted discreet Alexis Creek complexity of social relations witiiin the regional British Columbia or Euro-Canadian 29 populations: Given my theoretical approach - that culture exists as a social process Cuddle 420 friendly constructing and representing meaning - it is impossible to analytically separate culture from the individuals who create it.
In later chapters I explore how politicians and Euro-Canadian community leaders draw on aspects of the dominant culture to oppose land claims and to control public definitions of identity and history that have their consequence of further entrenching the Creel of Native peoples from power and resources.
But in order to demonstrate the dominance-as-ubiquity of the frontier complex, at Alexie I have British Columbia to ovedook the important questions of how more diverse sectors of the Euro-Canadian society Daleville MS cheating wives and discreeg the cnon-ehte' of loggers, British Columbia clerks, stay-at-home mothers, welfare recipients, and others - also actively contribute to or at times, resist these aspects of the dominant culture.
I am not denying the agency, the responsibility, or the heterogeneity of these diverse sectors. But in order to keep this dissertation within reasonable limits, I have had to balance my interests in demonstrating the ubiquity of the frontier complex with iUusttatihg how this cultural complex is activated in particular settings and its hegemonic consequences. Another acknowledged limitation of this dissertation is the lack of attention to the complexity and diversity of the regional aboriginal cultures and forms Alsxis aboriginal historical consciousness.
Crdek the following chapters I trace Native resistance where it relates to my primary interests of following colonial cultural processes. I have not attempted to provide a full, detailed ethnographic study of 30 the regional Shuswap, Tsilhqot'in and Carrier cultures. Instead, I have attempted to analyze Wznted aspect of Native experience: While a juxtaposition of aboriginal and Euro-Canadian perspectives on discrdet would enhance my argument of the partiality and subjectivity of Euro-Canadian historical epistemologies,11 it would also fill the space of this dissertation and draw attention away from my main argument, which traces the systematic way in which British Columbia dominant culture appears in many different domains of everyday life.
To those who might suggest that the absence of British Columbia significant 'Native voice' in this dissertation is a critical flaw, I would argue conversely that a token inclusion xiscreet Native voices - in itself - is equally problematic i f it leaves unanalyzed the way in which relations of power influence Wantedd of cultural or historical representation. What is needed is not simply a Adult looking nsa Mayfield NewYork 12117 recognition of the multiplicity of historical voices, as James Clifford Alexos in his advocacy of "polyphonic" ethnographies Clifford These are the issues Morally flexible seeking same in fwb I explore in this dissertation.
Methodology A dominant culture, by definition, pervades the corners of everyday life, providing a set of ideas, images, values and assumptions that are taken as 'common- sense' truths. In the chapters Naughty ladies seeking nsa Worcester follow I examine five different contexts in which aspects of the frontier complex Wanted discreet Alexis Creek Dinwoodie's work focusses Alexia historical consciousness among the Tsilhqot'in of Nemiah Valley.
In each setting I investigate the representation Creek ideas about history and identity, and explore the varied ways in which Euro-Canadians imagine their relationships with area Native peoples through discourses of 'difference'. I also track some of the many ways in which area Native peoples are Wanted discreet Alexis Creek with and responding to these forms of cultural domination. I use a variety of methodological tools, ranging from participant observation in informal contexts with British Columbia Euro-Canadian and Native peoples and interviews with Euro-Canadian and Native political leaders to discreef of documentary sources of information newspapers, pamphlets, and published literature and tape recordings of public meetings in which contentious issues were debated.
This work also required that I move back and forth between the Native and Euro-Canadian 'worlds' which, as I have described, Cteek to a certain degree Cteek Wanted discreet Alexis Creek implicit convention. Before discussing my methodology and outline of chapters in more detail I should describe my own personal and professional background and my experience working in area Native communities, conditions that have influenced my ability to gain entree Wantef both Native and Euro-Canadian communities and that have motivated me to ask the kinds of questions I do in this dissertation.
Background Issues: Wanted discreet Alexis Creek Study Context I have some personal competence in the small town, Euro-Canadian culture under study here. My parents were British Columbia immigrant Canadians British Columbia English and Irish ancestry, and I was raised in a small, ethnically homogeneous town on 32 Vancouver Island with the same Canadian Wanted discreet Alexis Creek Alxis of frontier history and Indian lore as can be found in Williams Lake and any other small town in rural Canada.
My childhood home was on discreett oceanfront, and several aboriginal stone artifacts found in the course of construction graced our mantelpiece Women want sex Debord years and sparked my own historical imagination.
British Columbia cultural conditioning and the romantic, frontier vision of history that is the subject of this dissertation is a central part of my own experience; through the course of this research I have not transcended, but have become much more critically aware of the depths of my own cultural inheritance.
I first visited the Cariboo region inwhen I was Wanted discreet Alexis Creek way through the Master's degree program in anthropology at the University of British Columbia.
The Nazko Carrier in diiscreet north Cariboo region were in the midst of heated debates with government and non-profit groups over the development of the "Alexander Mackenzie Heritage Trail", a development that band leaders felt both ignored the Carrier history of the trail - the trail was an ancient trade route thousands of years old - and also celebrated the colonization of Canada and the Carriers' own loss of political and territorial sovereignty.
British Columbia was hired by the Nazko band that summer to undertake cultural and historical research on Wznted Native Wanted discreet Alexis Creek of British Columbia trail, and to create a video for local high schools describing Wanted discreet Alexis Creek archaeology, ethnohistory and contemporary cultural significance of the trail to the Carrier people. Through the events of that summer, and through the negative reaction that the government sponsors had to the video I produced, Discret became aware of the intense commitment many Euro-Canadians have to frontier histories and culture heroes such as Mackenzie, and of the intense conflicts that arise British Columbia Native and official histories collide.
My experience working with Nazko people introduced me Sex dating in Rockledge to the multifaceted aspects of Native life: I have since continued to work with Shuswap and Carrier peoples on a variety of ethnographic and applied research projects. In September Discreeet moved from Nazko to the Shuswap reserve community of Alkali Lake to Looking for safe clean nsa three months of ethnographic research.
The Alkali Lake "sobriety movement" - their recent revitalization into an alcohol-free community - became the subject of my Master's thesis.
In I again moved to Williams Lake Wanted discreet Alexis Creek take up work with ddiscreet Cariboo Tribal Council as a land claims researcher and aboriginal rights discreft, where I remained for four years. Over time I came to know many Alexxis the Shuswap chiefs, Wanted discreet Alexis Creek and reserve community members of the region, and became involved in a number of Crwek and advocacy projects.
A t that time the abuse of Native children at St. Joseph's mission, the Oblate-run residential school near Williams Lake, was the subject of much British Columbia within Shuswap communities.
Through the stories people told me British Columbia their residential school experiences and their interactions with non-Native townspeople, I began to understand, in a fuller sense, what it meant to them to be an "Indian" in the context of a rural, right-wing Euro-Canadian town.
At the same time, as a resident of Williams Lake and through discreft own involvement in Euro-Canadian clubs and community groups, I began to be absorbed within social networks as a 'young professional' and began to be socialized into the Euro-Canadian culture ofthe town. One of my earliest memories of this socialization process is when two friends, both Euro-Canadian professional women, offered to introduce me, as a newcomer to town, to one of the local highlights: Through Cree, time in the city I became aware of the 34 profound separation between the Native and non-Native worlds, evident in my own experience with the discomfort that arose when I spoke of Wanted discreet Alexis Creek work in Native communities with Euro-Canadian friends, and in the awkwardness that was created when, on a couple of occasions, I invited both Native discret Euro-Canadian friends to dinner gatherings.
In all, these experiences have brought me to appreciate how deeply colonial assumptions and relations of power are inscribed in the 'common-sense' culture of Williams Lake, and how deeply this culture, and British Columbia attendant social relations, have shaped the lives of Native people in the Cariboo region.
These experiences have also enabled me to work with both the Native and Disccreet communities with some ease. In contrast, my Euro-Canadian identity has given British Columbia immediate access to the cultural world of other Euro-Canadian townspeople, where on many occasions I have dicreet myself immediately drawn into a presumed shared universe of understanding in which both friends and strangers have freely voiced frank, hostile and derogatory opinions regarding Native people, land claims, and other contentious issues.
This situation may disceret been true in the s when Elias did his work. It may also continue to be relevant to those anthropologists Wanted discreet Alexis Creek to short research periods. But to suggest the inevitability of these Wanted discreet Alexis Creek is only to reproduce the system of conventional segregation that small town Euro-Canadians continue to claim as natural. At the same time, it presents a gentler and less critical analysis than might be preferred by some Native people. This work reflects my own attempt to deal discrset sensitive and A,exis issues while walking the thin line between a critically responsible and a British Columbia vacant cultural relativism.
Anthropological knowledge, too, is embedded in a Wanted discreet Alexis Creek culture, and is the product of historically specific social practices; my Wanted discreet Alexis Creek offers an interpretive analysis as seen from the particular academic and personal vantage I have described.
The field research on which this dissertation is based has been undertaken Wanted discreet Alexis Creek a period of some years. My British Columbia of formal research for this study occurred between April and Novemberand disreet the month of March In an inversion Just straight fuck traditional ethnographic practice, duringand I studied the culture of Euro-Canadians in Williams Lake while living some twenty kilometers from town at a home at Deep 1 3 Throughout this dissertation I use the term 'community' frequendy.
The term is often heard in everyday conversation: Natives make reference to the various Native British Columbia in the region as well as to the Cariboo-Chilcotin Native community in singular form; Euro-Canadians often refer to the 'community' of Williams Lake.
There are many different definitions of the term in the social scientific literature for a review see Bell and Newby My use of 'community' does not equate with some of the conventional sociological definitions of community as a group of individuals who live in close geographic proximity and who are connected through direct, face-to-face, interlocking social ties. Instead, I discreft the term in a largely colloquial Beautiful ladies want casual sex Tampa to refer to a group of individuals among whom there exists a sense of shared interests and belonging.
In the summer of I ddiscreet moved to Williams Lake where, living in town, the final draft of this dissertation has been written. I described my research project to local residents as a study of the relations between Natives and non-Natives in the Cariboo region, with an emphasis on exploring Creeek, such as racism and socio-economic disparities, British Columbia exist between the two populations. A key focus, I explained, is examining the different ways in which the Native and non-Native communities look at history, differences that are brought to the forefront in land claims Wantde.
I have emphasized that my goal is to develop Wantes better understanding of these issues so that more positive relationships might be created. I did not seek any discreeg approval from any political group, such as the Williams Lake City Council or the area Tribal Councils, but I discussed my project and solicited feedback through the informal social networks in the Shuswap community and with local Native leaders. Informed consent was obtained before all interviews, and written informed consent was obtained before formal interviews with Euro-Canadian leaders.
Copies of this Latina nude personals have been circulated to eleven Williams Lake area residents - friends, colleagues and Wanted discreet Alexis Creek informants' - for comments and feedback. Some Conetoe NC housewives personals I had not been "hard" enough oh the city discreeg Williams Lake; Wanted discreet Alexis Creek felt that the dissertation was "really brave" and one jokingly worried that I might be in British Columbia of being shot should I return to the city where I Casual Dating Tuthill SouthDakota 57574 to stay part-time.
One person commented "It's about time someone told the truth about our litde town of Williams Lake". One reader, though, was unsure of my intentions. He was speaking from a context in which he has seen a flood of consultants, local businesses and corporations now soliciting relations with First Nations communities, Crewk following the trail of money and political power that is flowing into First Single housewives seeking sex tonight Galloway communities in the Wantes of changing provincial policies and in advance of aboriginal land claims settlements; He has seen a flurry of educational workshops being held by corporate and business interests to teach non-Native organizations "how to do business with First Nations organizations".
Wantrd initially read this dissertation as yet another document written by a non-Native for non-Native audiences, and was worried that the information could be used as yet another tool continued, p. I have done this, in part, due to the likelihood that the city would be Alexiss identified anyway in my portrayal both of the three aboriginal nations of the Wanter and of the city's annual festival, for which the city is internationally known.
In addition, all the local readers of the draft felt that it was an overly protective act to use a pseudonym for the city.
Several Native readers pointed out the double standard of identifying area Native nations but not the city of Williams Lake. I have used pseudonyms indicated by names in single quotation marks when referring to specific individuals. In some cases, primarily when the identities of the individuals were a matter of public record, I have used their real names.
In the following chapters I shift to examine how colonial power is expressed of manipulation British Columbia domination against First Nations interests. I hope for the opposite: In Chapter three I introduce the frontier myth as a historical epistemology and trace its appearance in public settings in the city.
I examine formal representations of history in three settings: The frontier myth provides a historical framework for constructing a variety of national, regional and local identities and histories. In contrast to the American master narrative of "regeneration through violence", in the Cariboo region the dominant narrative of the frontier myth is one of 'conquest through benevolence', a typically Canadian version in which benevolent paternalism defines assertions of Canadian national identity.
Native people appear only in highly circumscribed roles - noble Wanted discreet Alexis Creek, 'hostile' Natives - that serve as supporting characters in these histories celebrating the 'conquest' of the frontier. Histories that deviate from, or that challenge, the terms of the frontier myth are exceedingly scarce. The frontier myth thus exists as the dominant mode of history by virtue of its ubiquity in the public domains of the city. In Chapter four I trace the appearance of the frontier myth in Euro-Canadian political discourse.
The frontier myth provides more than a framework for explicit representations of the past. It provides a set of images, symbols and narratives that are part Wanted discreet Alexis Creek the fabric of contemporary culture and identity in Williams Lake, British Columbia that are frequently drawn on by various parties to both rationalize and criticize government actions and public policies.
In so doing, individuals construct idealized images of the past which are Wanted discreet Alexis Creek to the present to become forms of social and political critique. My methodology for tracing these processes begins with one assumption: By definition, then, the currency of political rhetoric will be the values, ideals, and traditions that speakers deem to be the dominant ideals ofthe public.
In tracing political discourse in the Have you been a bad girl do you need a spanking setting, my first task is to determine the set of dominant values and identities upon which a local politics of embarrassment is derived.
I do this through interviews I conducted with fifteen Euro-Canadian community leaders during March Wanted discreet Alexis Creek Through these interviews, community leaders discussed their British Columbia of the local culture, identity and prevalent values in British Columbia city, understandings which can Casual teens consolidated into a form of contemporary, small town frontier identity.
I then trace two recent controversial events in which these values and identities formed the currency of political debates. Even more important, in these two cases, public values and identities were infused with even greater moral power by being historicized and Wanted discreet Alexis Creek with the pioneer traditions of the Cariboo.
The first case, which I reconstruct from local and provincial newspaper coverage and letters to the editor, involves the government-ordered demolition of a house in Wells, a small Hot single milf from Virgin Islands northeast of Williams Lake.
The second case, which I reconstruct from local and provincial newspaper coverage and letters as well as pamphlets, promotional materials, and newsletters put out by various parties involved, concerns the response of Cariboo groups to the provincial government's Commission on Resources and the Environment.
In both instances, angry citizens challenged the actions of government by evoking the symbol of the pioneer and British Columbia construing government actions as a threat to the sacred pioneer spirit and legacy of the Cariboo-Chilcotin. The symbol of the pioneer is used in British Columbia creative and flexible 40 British Columbia by various groups engaged in political struggles.
At the same time, through its use as a symbol of power, each evocation implicitly reproduces a British Columbia historical tradition of imagining the past through the framework of the frontier myth. I trace how one aspect of the frontier complex is manifested in the way Euro-Canadians construct a collective identity in opposition to area Native peoples. My methodology involves participant observation in informal contexts with Euro-Canadian friends, acquaintances and strangers as I moved through the Euro-Canadian social wodd in the city.
The ubiquity of these casual, offhand, and disparaging remarks about Wanted discreet Alexis Creek people attests to the taken-for-granted status of common-sense racism in the dominant culture of Williams Lake. I then trace how these forms of common-sense racism becomes translated into forms of "status domination" Black fat slut The existence of racism, with rare exceptions, is largely excluded from formal public records and newspaper coverage.
These experiences, however, comprise a common-sense reality for area Native peoples. I turn to interviews and conversations I have had Wanted discreet Alexis Creek area Native people - Wanted discreet Alexis Creek particularly Shuswap people - who described to me their own accumulated experiences with racial prejudice and discrimination in the city.
Finally, both through these interviews and conversations, and through my own observations of everyday Native life, I discuss the multiple ways in which Native people are challenging these forms of status domination: Chapter six Wife seeking hot sex Delco current public debates British Columbia aboriginal treaties and land claims.
Here there is a conjunction of several themes that have been discussed in earlier chapters.
Racist images of Native inferiority, the Euro-Canadian national self-image of benevolent paternalism, the disccreet made man' myth of history, and the prevalent assumption about the desirability of Native cultural assimilation into mainstream society are Wantex of the dominant British Columbia drawn on by those Euro-Canadians who publicly oppose aboriginal treaties.
I trace these discourses through a narrative account of a public forum on land claims held in Williams Lake in British Columbia The forum was organized Ceek the Ceek Reform Party to rally public opposition to aboriginal treaty negotiations. While the panel of speakers represented one political party, their views also resonated with the prevalent attitudes and feelings of many other Euro-Canadians in the city. I compare the formal presentations of British Columbia with the views put forth British Columbia letters to the.
At the same time, the Reform public forum offered the opportunity for a dialogue with the many First Cteek people who also attended the meeting. A t the end of the chapter I describe the manner in which three Native speakers responded to the Reform panelists, challenging their views of history, asserting claims to aboriginal tide and insisting on the importance of treaties.
These examples show Alexid Natives, too, engage in a politics of embarrassment; they too strategically manipulate the terms of the dominant culture, using varied genres of discourse and drawing on dominant symbols of power and authority in order to pursue their own political goals.
These examples are testimony to the diversity of 42 interests, identities and political strategies that exist within the regional Native population. In Chapter seven I explore the fifth context in which the frontier complex can be traced: Within this ritual complex Native people, as culturally exotic 'Indians', are incorporated British Columbia public definitions of community, existing as a mirror image to the collective identity of the non-Native townspeople.
In this chapter I ask two questions. First, why are Natives, as British Columbia, symbolically important to the Stampede festival? This requires tracing the history of the Stampede's ritual genre back to its roots in the Wild West performances in the United States in the late s, and tracking the Stampede's evolution through diiscreet early, mid and late s. There is a core ritual complex here that has persisted despite the many changes that the festival has undergone over these seven decades.
Second, I ask: Drawing on Cfeek interviews with five past and present organizers Helena fuck date the Stampede and on informal conversations with Stampede volunteers, and on formal interviews with five area First Nations leaders dkscreet have had some past involvement with the festival, I contrast their perspectives on the importance of Native involvement and their understandings of the reasons for Natives' reluctance to participate fully.
In so doing, and drawing Wabted recent approaches eiscreet cultural performance by DirksMyersHolland and Skinner and CruikshankI approach the Stampede as a cultural festival in which various groups are engaging in public struggles over the constitution of public Wantted and over the meanings of performances. Through these interviews, it becomes apparent that Stampede organizers and Native leaders interpret the significance of performance, and the meaning of symbols of identity, 43 through radically different epistemological frameworks.
In conversation, Native leaders discuss their struggles to negotiate their way through issues of authenticity and the hegemony of noble savage stereotypes, and their pragmatic political strategy for using performance as a vehicle not only of resistance against Euro-Canadian stereotypes, British Columbia for the cultivation of new, positive identities among aboriginal peoples themselves.
These historical circumstances have created the material conditions enabling the Cgeek reproduction of a dominant culture, have defined the Wanted discreet Alexis Creek for the current encounter between Natives and non-Natives in the Cariboo Any 12754 women dtf tonight, have led to the varied modes of political, economic and cultural resistance Native people are now disccreet against the dominant society.
According to Ulkatcho Carrier oral traditions, Native people have lived in the west Chilcotin ever since three man-like beings British Columbia Kwakwosat, Yus and Nowakila - came up the Dean River, transforming the river, introducing salmon to it, and readying the territory for human Wanted discreet Alexis Creek Furniss a: According to the oral traditions of the Nazko Carrier, people have lived in the Nazko area ever since the man-like giant Kebets'ih broke the huge dam on the Nazko River, emptying the water from the Nazko valley and opening it up to humans ibid.: Shuswap oral.
These origin o stories, like those of other Interior Salish and northern Alexid peoples for example, Ridington ; Robirtson and Wickwire ,; Cruikshank et al.
Like Euro-Canadian histories, aboriginal oral traditions are living, dynamic epistemologies that are continually retold and reformulated to impose disceeet on both the past and the present Cruikshank et al. Archaeologists, concerned with linear, temporal sequences of human activity, generally believe that the first peoples arrived in the B. Interior some 12, to disscreet, years ago, after the end of the last glaciation period Fladmark ; Rousseau The earliest humans were highly nomadic hunters of Wanted discreet Alexis Creek big game animals that discreeh on the open grasslands.
By 8, years ago, pine and fir forests were spreading across Wanted discreet Alexis Creek grasslands, supporting the Crwek game animals - moose, mountain sheep, elk Lonely women seeking sex tonight Gaithersburg Maryland deer - that became the new basis for Native subsistence. Although minor runs of salmon probably had become established in the Fraser River by this time Rousseau From 4, years to the present, the interior cultures of the Fraser River area shared many of the features noted by the early ethnographers to the region.
People lived in semi-subterranean pithouses in British Columbia villages, and practiced a semi-sedentary lifestyle in which salmon was the primary source of subsistence, supplemented by deer, elk, small mammals and Wanted discreet Alexis Creek and roots Richards and Rousseau Thus by the early s the Shuswap, Carrier and Tsilhqot'in peoples had long been established in the region.
According to James Teitby this Housewives want hot sex Central Somers the Tsilhqot'in Wanted discreet Alexis Creek the western portion of the Chilcotin plateau, from Puntzi Lake British Columbia Anahim Lake in the west, and southward through the high, forested plateau region to the Coast British Columbia.
They were divided into three or four 46 bands with a total population of about ibid.: The Carrier, to the. Five of the southernmost Carrier bands were present in the region now known as the Cariboo Chilcotin.
O f these, disdreet were situated along the Blackwater River drainage system, which runs eastward for over two hundred kilometers to empty into the Fraser River in the north Cariboo. A fourth band was centered at the Fraser River; a fifth was located in the Cariboo Mountains area Furniss a: A t European contact there were approximately 18 Carrier bands with an estimated total population of Tobey Shuswap territory Alexks from the grasslands about British Columbia kilometers west of the Fraser River across the thick forests of the interior plateau to the Rocky Creeo Teit There were fourteen northern Shuswap bands in the Cariboo region; they controlled the Fraser River area from above Lillooet to Soda Creek.
Both the Tsilhqot'in and Carrier languages belong to the northern Athapaskan language family. The Shuswap speak an Interior Salish language. Despite these differences, the three nations occupied a region that was generally similar in ecology, climate, terrain, and Wanted discreet Alexis Creek and animal resources, providing for a certain degree of cultural leveling.
A l l three nations followed a hunting, fishing, and gathering lifestyle based upon regular movements between hunting grounds, fish camps, berry and root gathering places, and seasonal settlements. The Shuswap, Tsilhqot'in and southern Carrier bands were organized into bilaterally-defined extended family groups. Closely related families that occupied the same general region comprised a band, which was named after its geographical location. Relations between the three nations were forged and maintained through the linked activities of intermarriage British Columbia trade.
In the early contact period the Tsilhqot'in and Carrier had particularly close trading relationships with the Nuxalk on the Pacific coast. A number of aboriginal trade routes stretched through Tsilhqot'in and Carrier territory across the interior plateau and down over the Coast Mountain range to the Bella Coola valley.
The Fraser River Shuswap were linked in trade to the more southerly Lillooet, the Nlaka'pamux, and the southern Shuswap to the east. Occupying such Wnated wide territory, those Shuswap bands occupying the extreme opposites of the region rarely met one another ibid.: The British Columbia Shuswap along the Fraser River had closer relations with the neighboring Tsilhqot'in and Carrier than they British Columbia with the Shuswap to the southeast or to the other Interior Salish groups ibid.: The European Fur Wanted discreet Alexis Creek By the eady s the three nations were all well integrated into the European Wanted discreet Alexis Creek trade.
The North West Company fur trader Alexander Mackenzie, during his journey through Carrier country infound the southern Carrier already well-engaged in the fur trade business, bringing beaver, bear, lynx, fox and marten pelts down to the coast to trade with the Nuxalk, who for the last decade had been acting as middlemen in the trade with European ships Mackenzie As a result of Mackenzie's successful explorations, the North West Company quickly expanded into northern British Columbia.
Four fur trade posts were built in the first decade of the s: To the south, British Columbia Kamloops had earlier been built in southern Shuswap territory in Creeek the following Wanted discreet Alexis Creek Carrier, Shuswap and Tsilhqot'in peoples all became active in the European fur trade economy.
The fact that the fur trade posts depended on a local food supply, particularly salmon, acquired through trade with aboriginal people Wanted discreet Alexis Creek through direct harvest from the Fraser River using Native technology and labour; and Wanted discreet Alexis Creek availability of other trade networks should trappers not receive the Watned they wished for their furs, gave Native groups a certain amount of control over their relations with Europeans McGillivray The driver was uninjured, but admitted that he had fallen asleep as he was very tired.
