Clean, tight, unmarked; crease to center front of cover; wear to bottom back inside corner; otherwise spine straight and uncreased; very minimal wear; Rooster Town, which was on the outskirts of southwest Winnipeg, endured from 1901 to 1961. This book reconstructs the story of a community rooted in kinship, culture, and historical circumstance, whose residents existed unofficially in the cracks of municipal bureaucracy, while navigating the legacy of settler colonialism and the demands of modernity and urbanization. It challenges the lingering mainstream belief that Indigenous people and their culture are incompatible with urban life and opens the door to a broader conversation about the insidious nature of racial stereotypes ubiquitous among the broader Canadian polity.
