An Aboriginal Presence

Olive Dickason

Olive Patricia Dickason began her career as a journalist for The Gazette, in Montreal, and The Globe and Mail, before becoming a professor of History at the University of Alberta. The author of The Myth of the Savage, Canada's First Nations, and with L.C. Green, The Laws of Nations and the New World, she is proud of her Métis heritage.

In donating a copy of Canada's First Nations to the Museum, she felt it was important that one of her Métis sashes accompany it.
