Seeking to shed new light on the prevailing mythology surrounding colonial settlerism, this collection presents a detailed examination of the various forms of racism faced by immigrants and Indigenous people living and working in Southern Alberta. Drawing on reflective personal narrative, experiential research, and critical theoretical engagement, these essays connect localized experiences with broader structural and systemic forms of intersectional racism. In these accounts of racial profiling and carding, as well as representations of victim/perpetrator crime reporting readers are given powerful examples of the many ways that institutional and everyday racism is perpetuated through both policy and practice.
