Riassunto: Scholars often accept without question that Canada's
Indian Act (1876) criminalized First Nations. In this
illuminating book, Shelley Gavigan argues that the notion of
criminalization captures neither the complexities of Aboriginal
participation in the courts nor the significance of the Indian
Act as a form of law.
Gavigan uses records of ordinary cases from the lower courts and
insights from critical criminology and traditional legal history to
interrogate state formation and criminal law in the Saskatchewan region
of the North-West Territories between 1870 and 1905. By focusing on
Aboriginal people's participation in the courts rather than on
narrow legal categories such as "the state" and "the
accused," Gavigan allows Aboriginal defendants, witnesses, and
informants to emerge in vivid detail and tell the story in their own
terms. Their experiences -- captured in court files, police and
penitentiary records, and newspaper accounts -- reveal that the
criminal law and the Indian Act operated in complex and
By showing that the criminal courts were as likely to include acts
of mediation as coercion, Hunger, Horses, and Government Men
takes the study of criminal law and criminalization in a new direction,
one that challenges conventional wisdom and popular images of relations
of power and discrimination in the courts. Shelley A.M. Gavigan is a professor of law at Osgoode
Hall Law School and a member of the graduate faculties in Law,
Socio-Legal Studies, and Women's Studies at York University.
