"Every Canadian should read [this] book." -- Toronto Star

Since its publication in 2012, The Inconvenient Indian has become an award-winning bestseller and a modern classic. In its pages, Thomas King tells the curiously circular tale of the relationship between non-Native and Indigenous people in the centuries since the two first encountered each other. This new, provocatively illustrated edition matches essential visuals to the book's urgent words, and in so doing deepens and expands King's message. With more than 150 images--from artwork, photographs, advertisements and archival documents to contemporary representations of Native peoples by Native peoples, including some by King himself--this unforgettable volume vividly shows how "Indians" have been seen, understood, propagandized, represented and reinvented in North America.
Here is a book both timeless and timely, burnished with anger and tempered by wit, and ultimately a hard-won offering of hope--an inconvenient but necessary account for all of us seeking to tell a new story, in both words and images, for the future.
