As Far as Possible, No Salmon
As Far as Possible, No Salmon
Scott Thompson
This metal tag and list of conditions formed the foundation for the surveillance and management of First Nations fishing practices in 1920s British Columbia. Scott Thompson, a Banting postdoctoral fellow in the Surveillance Studies Centre, is researching how surveillance technologies, like this one, that were designed and implemented by the Canadian government, not only asserted a particular vision of how First Nations peoples ought to behave and enforced this vision, but in doing so, also contributed to the establishment of hurtful “Indian” stereotypes that are still with us today.
