The Fraudulent Treaty is a modestly revised version of CHAPTER X from Inkonze: The Stones of Traditional
Knowledge, a comprehensive history of Northeastern Alberta. The book's unique research model integrates Aboriginal oral history with written historical records to relate Dene people's ancient connection with the Athabasca. The Chipewyan people's mythology and traditions confirm that they are the First People of the Athabasca; and therefore, the co-authors contend that it is in this historical context which Treaty No. 8 must be understood.|
