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
contradictory ways.

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.
