"As a poet and citizen deeply concerned by the Oka Crisis, the Idle No More protests and Canada's ongoing failure to resolve First Nations issues, Montreal author Mark Abley has long been haunted by the figure of Duncan Campbell Scott, known both as the architect of Canada's most destructive aboriginal policies and as one of the nation's major poets. Who was this enigmatic figure who could compose a sonnet to an 'Onondaga Madonna' one moment and promote a 'final solution' to the 'Indian problem' the next?". Book about Department of Indian Affairs--Canada & Duncan Campbell Scott. (Indians of North America, Colonization--Canada, Government--Canada, Indian Act--Canada, Indians of North America, Indigenous Peoples--Canada, Poets--Canada, Residential Schools, Settlement--Canada).
