  118. Mapping UFW Strikes, Boycotts, and Farm Worker Actions 1965-1975
    When ethnic Mexican farm workers led by Cesar Chavez joined with Filipino American workers led by Larry Itliong in 1965 to strike grape growers in Delano, California, the modern farm workers movement was born. Operating initially as the United Farm Workers Organizing Committee and later as the UFW, the union spread beyond California as it launched a national grape boycott and inspired farm worker organizing in other states. Researched by Katie Anastas, these maps show the geography of UFW activism, locating more than 1,000 farm worker strikes, boycotts, and other actions.

  134. No Surrender: The Land Remains Indigenous
    First Published: 2019
    Between 1869 and 1877 the government of Canada negotiated Treaties One through Seven with the Indigenous peoples of the Great Plains. Many historians argue that the negotiations suffered from cultural misunderstandings between the treaty commissioners and Indigenous chiefs, but newly uncovered eyewitness accounts show that the Canadian government had a strategic plan to deceive over the "surrender clause" and land sharing. According to Sheldon Krasowski's research, Canada understood that the Cree, Anishnabeg, Saulteaux, Assiniboine, Siksika, Piikani, Kainaa, Stoney and Tsuu T’ina nations wanted to share the land with newcomers -- with conditions -- but were misled over governance, reserved lands, and resource sharing. Exposing the government chicanery at the heart of the negotiations, No Surrender demonstrates that the land remains Indigenous.
