Reveals the immigrant narratives of resilience that define British Columbia's past and present. Chinese migrants were among the first non-Indigenous people to arrive in B.C. and became the principal labour force behind the Canadian Pacific Railway. Once built, the railroad brought trains of white Canadians westward. White supremacy drove policy and anti-Asian racism, leading to the Chinese Immigration Act and the Continuous Journey regulation. The Komagata Maru freighter from India docked in the Burrard Inlet for two months in protest. During World War II, more than 22,000 Japanese-Canadians were interned in B.C. The Doukhobors and American war resisters helped turn the province into a hotbed of alternative thought and counterculture that still continues to this day.
Titles included in British Columbia: An Untold History:
- Change + Resistance: Uncovers the Indigenous resistance to oppression in British Columbia. First Nations persevered through years of brutality and criminalization -- remembering this history is an act of refusal to be erased.
- Labour + Persistence: Explores the history of labour and equality in British Columbia. First Nations, immigrants, and women fought overseas for Canada in both World Wars, and then kept fighting for equal rights at home.
- Nature + Co-Existence: Examines how the history of British Columbia is inseparably fused with the history of natural resources. First Nations have worked with non-Indigenous environmentalists to co-exist and protect the land.
