The colonial war is fought on many fronts: at home, on the land, in primary schools, in hospitals and universities, in court, and right inside the victims' own identities.

Tsaskiy (Ron George)

The Fifth World

 Grandson of the great Wet'suwet'en leader Gisdayway, Ron George (Tsaskiy) writes the history of his family's dispossession. Gisdayway, co-plaintiff in the famous 1997 Delgamuukw decision on Aboriginal title and rights, was not a "Status Indian."

The colonial war is fought on many fronts - at home, on the land, in schools, in hospitals and universities, in court, and right inside the victims' own identities. 


Ron George's life-long quest for self-determination for the colonized Indigenous nations has traversed potlatches, universities, the United Native Nations, the Native Council of Canada, and further. His treatise on identity and the source of the individual's right within the nation is a confirmation of all the sovereigntists, the roadblockers, the war weary, and the next generations.

If Indigenous Peoples around the globe can be considered "The Fourth World" - as Grand Chief George Manuel named them, being even more desperate than the global "Third World" countries - then unrecognized Indigenous individuals, with no rights at home and no representation in the colonial state, are the citizenry of The Fifth World.
