Emma LaRocque, a University of Manitoba professor, is set to launch her latest work—When the Other Is Me: Native Resistance Discourse 1850-1990—at McNally Robinson Booksellers in Grant Park Shopping Centre on March 25 at 7:30 p.m.
LaRocque, who lives in Linden Woods, believes these historical texts have created a negative contemporary perception of aboriginal Canadians.
"Colonial texts are offensive. In fact, many of these texts constitute hate literature," said LaRocque, who grew up in a Cree-speaking Metis culture in northeast Alberta.
