This work documents an important yet little-known moment in Canadian history, when a First Nations team of athletes represented Canada in international sport. In 1939, a troupe of eight rodeo riders, accompanied by an RCMP officer, traveled to Sydney, Australia, to complete in the Royal Easter Show. In all, four distinct cultural groups were represented--Australians, Americans, white Canadians, and First Nations Canadians--at a time when international competition in rodeo was rare. Author Lynda Mannik's approach is unique because she incorporates five different perspectives of a single episode: those of the Royal Agricultural Society of New South Wales; the Canadian government; the eight First Nations men who participated; the RCMP officer who traveled with the team; and the Australian public. These multiple perspectives emphasize how constructions of identity are, in varying degrees, intercultural and social in nature, and are also based on relationships of power.Mannik, Lynda is the author of 'Canadian Indian Cowboys in Australia Representation, Rodeo, And the RCMP at the Royal Easter Show, 1939', published 2006 under ISBN 9781552382004 and ISBN 1552382001.
