The "Bended Elbow" News, Kenora 1974: How a Small-Town Newspaper Promoted Colonization

Authors use discourse analysis to interrogate that narrative created by the Miner & News surrounding a six-week standoff between the Ojibway Warrior Society and the municipality of Kenora, ON. Discusses tropes of barbarism and civilization vs savagery, and the paper’s failure to differentiate between the Warrior Society and Indigenous peoples generally.
