A History of Uranium Mining in Canada
Pending whose knowledge you seek and which rationality you chose, the history of uranium mining in Canada entails both pessimistic and optimistic perspectives. The miners believed in a rationality of prosperity at the expense of the existing First Nation lifestyles and beliefs. It’s a history of settler colonialism in which the process of conquer generated counter claims of defeat. The ongoing clash between claims and counter-claims, prophecies and counter-prophecies, traditional and scientific knowledge, mark the history of Canadian mining along with the larger history of nuclear industries and weaponry. And these stories are rarely resolved.
