Shared Histories looks deeply into what happened at the intersection of settler dreams and Witsuwit’en reality in the small northwestern British Columbia town of Smithers. Planted in a swamp at the base of a mountain, this railway town tried to exclude the region’s first inhabitants. This collection of hidden histories reveals how generations of Witsuwit’en made a place for themselves in town despite local, provincial, and national efforts push them, and indeed all Indigenous peoples, to the fringes.
