dc.description.abstract This thesis is a critical history about Cranbrook BC, the town where I grew up. It explores a historical origin story that historians have called the ‘Kootenai Uprising,’ as well as the annual regional holiday that commemorates that event - Sam Steele Days. By unpacking the symbols utilized in remembering history, applying new historical evidence towards the long accepted narrative and collaborating with Ktunaxa Nation, this thesis attempts to set the historical record straight, include Ktunaxa perspectives in the regional historical narrative and critically examine the practice of mythology in settler society as a way to both remember and forget the past. en_US
