Media Bias: The Chilcotin War
In this critical challenge, students review background information (accessed online) about the 1864 Chilcotin War between Aboriginal and white people. Students then examine primary and secondary source documents to determine the degree to which historical coverage of the conflict was biased. Students prepare an impartial account describing the Chilcotin War that could be used by fellow students in a study of First Nations-European contact in the 1860s.
