This paper examines the image of Native peoples in the novels "Tay John" by Howard O'Hagan with an after word by Michael Ondaatje, "The Vanishing Point" (author not known) and "The Scorched-Wood People" by Rudy Wiebe and in the play "The Occupation of Heather Rose" by Wendy Lill. The author points out that, in all four works, systemic racism plays a role in the oppression of the Native peoples. The paper relates that reverse discrimination and militancy are used to struggle against racism and oppression so that each work has a positive outcome.

From the Paper:

"The image of Native peoples, in the novels "Tay John", "The Vanishing Point", and The Scorched-Wood People as well as in the play "The Occupation of Heather Rose", is complex and variable. The patterns of systemic racism, reverse racism and the discrimination, which flow from them, are interwoven with social structures of which the oppressed very often are a part."
