With Reserves: Colonial Geographies
and First Nations Health

This article reviews findings from fifty-eight interviews with members of thirteen First Nations com- munities in Carrier, Sekani, Wet'suwet'en, and Babine territories. The results suggest that colonial geographies, both physical and social, along with extant anti-Indigenous racism, are significant determinants of the health and well-being (or lack thereof) of many First Nations in the region.
