Paradise Promised

By the late 1800's, the First Nations people of North America had lost almost all of their land to white men.  How this happened is a long and complicated story and one that continues to arouse feelings of anger and resentment on both sides of the issue.  'Paradise Promised' explores the historic relationship between First Nations and white colonists in regards to this transfer of land.  It is the hope that this photographic series will bring a solid base of understanding to the issue that will lead to healing and peace.
