Previously ignored or misunderstood by historians, the war between the Hwulmuhw or "People of the Land" and the colonial government of British Columbia remains of utmost significance in today's world of unsettled First Nations land claims. Chris Arnett reconstructs the fascinating account of the events of 1863 using newspaper editorials, letters, and articles; government and police correspondence; and navy logs.
