A Line of Blood and Dirt

Creating the Canada-United States Border across Indigenous Lands

Benjamin Hoy

  • Focusing on indigenous history and state power, this work argues that the border was never particularly effective at physically stopping people at the line.
  • Draws from hundreds of oral historians, regional histories, letters, and government archival documents across a wide array of communities and racial/ethnic groups.
  • Uses mapping and digital history techniques to create a visual depiction of Canadian and American power that shifts by region and over time.
