Protecting the nation?
In this critical challenge, students review background information (accessed online) about the conflict between the Chilcotin people and developers determined to access the rich resources in central British Columbia in 1864. Students then examine primary and secondary source documents to find evidence of the underlying causes of the war. Students prepare a written statement explaining the extent to which the Chilcotin War was about protecting a nation from an invader, and whether "nation" refers to a state or a people.
