I'm currently living in Berlin, and often field questions about this aspect of Canada. I don't know nothing, but I've come to realize that I really don't know much. More importantly, I don't trust my own understanding enough to be able to find those right books which are free of the various kinds of bullshit that can surround these issues.
I don't need anything too fancy. Just solid books to ground me in native histories before European arrival, the relationships with the Europeans pre confederation (in some ways this is what I'm most interested in), and the factors that have led to the difficult state of affairs in modern confederated Canada.
