When it was first published in 2010, The 500 Years of Resistance Comic Book was heralded as a groundbreaking illustrated history of Indigenous activism and resistance in the Americas over the previous 500 years, from contact to present day. Eleven years later, author and artist Gord Hill has revised and expanded the book, which is now available in colour for the first time.
The titles Gord recommends during this talk are:
- Bury my Heart at Wounded Knee, by Dee Brown
- People of the Pines, by Geoffrey York
- Conquest of Paradise, by Kirkpatrick Sale
- Agents of Repression, by Jim Vander Wall and Ward Churchill
