In under 200 pages, Howe concisely presents, as background, a history of early encounters of the Mi'kmaq peoples with the French and the British settlers, the formation of the Wabanaki Confederacy and its alliance with the Acadians against the British, the peace and friendship treaties between the Mi'kmaq and Great Britain, the skullduggery involved in the land grants to early New Brunswick settlers (one of these involved an ancestor of former New Brunswick premier Shawn Graham a prominent figure in this story), the 1876 Indian Act and the divisions it causes not just between native and settler populations, but among the Mi'kmaq, the history and significance of the Grand Council, the hydraulic fracturing process and the remarkable growth of the industry in the early years of the 21st century, the relationship between the Province of New Brunswick, those it recognizes as spokespeople for First Nations, and South Western Energy, among other relevant factors leading up to the 2013 protests and confrontation.

It's an important history, full of injustice and betrayal, police informants and payoffs, tremendous violence, but also, for the first time a rapprochement between settler protestors, furious over land appropriation, degraded farmland and threats to the water supply, and the Mi'kmaq, whose treaty rights have been disregarded by the Crown, whose leadership many feel does not represent the people, and the responsibility they feel toward protecting water. Howe does it justice. Beginning with pre confederation agreements Miles Howe documents the history of native lands and the prescribed processes to which they are to be subjected to. I attended at least 6 protests and gained a new respect for natives that summer, but I was only aware of the tip of the iceberg when it came to behind the scenes events. Premier Shawn Graham signed the SWN contract permitting shale gas testing in a significant portion of the province, St Stephen to Miramichi with no public discussion or input. David Alward was opposed to fracking in the legislature but following his election as Premier, he became adamant that there would be shale gas development and at the same time wore the hat of Minister of Native Affairs.

Fracking and other actions which could negatively impact reserve lands require some consultation, however, the Assembly of First Nations Chiefs in NB are all government appointed and unfortunately, integrity is no stronger in the native culture and many of those members were not acting on the wishes of the reserve population.

Miles relates the sordid tale including details of RCMP peace meetings followed the next morning with an attack by hundreds of heavily armed officers to break up the peaceful protest camp. It is a sad blot on the history of NB, however, SWN finally packed their equipment, which had not been destroyed and returned to Texas. The RCMP patrolling for public safety cost the Province millions of dollars that could have been saved had David Alward and Steven Harper had the constitution to meet and discuss with the local population rather than try to steam roll their agenda.
