For Indigenous propagandists Duncan Campbell Scott is the lazy “go to” personification of white “settler” genocide of Indigenous peoples. In fact he was an excellent, solid, liberal-minded Canadian, (yes, a man “of his times”- who isn’t?), whose only “crime” was caring about Indigenous peoples to the extent that he wanted them, mainly through education, to be able to leave the reserve and become fully equal, participating citizens of Canada. The charge that he wanted to destroy Indigenous culture is ridiculous. In 1909, when he got his first important job in the Department of Indian Affairs, authentic, pre-contact Indigenous culture had already disappeared long before that.
“Ottawa’s response to the loss of the buffalo was to pressure Indians to take up farming on their reserves as the only way they could sustain themselves. The scale of the challenge the Indians faced was not understood then, nor is it easy to comprehend it even in hindsight. In essence, the Plains Indians underwent a cultural catastrophe that encompassed every aspect of their lives-not just the material and political, but the social, the economic, the spiritual, the cultural, the psychological; each of these was either shattered or reduced to the redundant, the retrograde or, in the eyes of many outsiders, the comic. It is not easy to identify any people anywhere who have had to cope with so complete and swift an extinction of their way of life other than those defeated in war, occupied and reduced to slavery. Perhaps the best intellectual analysis of this transformational trauma is that by the American philosopher Jonathan Lear in his book Radical Hope. There, he explores the dimensions of a comment make by Chief Plenty Coups of the Crow Nation that, after the buffalo disappeared, “Nothing happened.” Chief Plenty Coups was saying that once the buffalo were gone, his people became like the living dead.”
Scott, on behalf of every government he worked for, and every government in Canada since the 1830’s, wanted to SAVE Indigenous people from this tragic situation.
A Defence of the Decency and Good Faith of the Anti-Segregationist, Treaty-Honouring Duncan Campbell Scott, Canadian Civil Servant, (by way of a book review of A Narrow Vision- Duncan Campbell Scott and the Administration of Indian Affairs in Canada)
It’s a 25 minute read. The Indigenous “residential schools were genocidal” lie is so deep-seated, (whole academic and political careers are based on it), that Mr. Scott deserves a proper, substantive defence.

Two Indigenous persons engineered the smuggling into Canada of 23 tractor-trailer loads of bulk tobacco, avoiding payment of $18,700,000 in customs duty. They were found guilty of different Criminal Code offences by a jury. On November 1st, 2023 all charges were stayed against them on the ground that they had been engaging in their Indigenous “legal-system”-authorized Aboriginal and treaty-authorized right to “tobacco trade”, protected by s. 35 of the Constitution Act, which rights, now fully endorsed by Trudeau’s state-suicidal UNDRIP laws, took precedence over the Criminal Code of Canada. The case is another judicial blow to Crown sovereignty, the rule of Canadian law, equality under the law and to the necessary tax revenue of the Canadian state.
By Declaring Mohawk Smuggling, Fraud, Conspiracy and Gangsterism a Constitutionally Protected Aboriginal Right the Canadian Judiciary, Lockstep with the Trudeau Federal Government, Continues Its Relentless Attack Against the Canadian State.
25 minute read. Forgive me, it’s long. But worth it, to experience the numerous disastrous trends happening now in Aboriginal court rulings. And the judgment was 365 pages long! It’s the best I could do in my attempt to fairly capture all the different essences of it.

Plus, immediately below is a link to independent researcher Nina Green’s Indian Residential School documents and testimonies website. Also is a link to the Indian Residential Schools Research Group website. Browse through them and you will conclude what a bundle of lies and misrepresentations is the depiction of residential schools presented by governments, the media, academia, the Aboriginal Industry (which is profiting hugely from these lies and misrepresentations), and shamefully, even today’s Churches themselves, whose forebearers sacrificed mightily for the good of Aboriginal peoples.
