Call #: Shortt FC3651 .A33 v.14 no.2 1966
Author: Fraser, William Bernard, 1941-
Title: Big Bear, Indian Patriot
Notes: Fraser rejects the standard views of Big Bear as either a troublesome Indian leader in support of Riel or an innocent victim of events he neither understood nor influenced. He argues that Big Bear was pursuing a policy of passive resistance in order to create greater Indian unity and to prevent the humiliating subjugation of his people.
