Divining Euro-Canadian history and its biases

  • Megan Sprous

Abstract

Canada is known as a multicultural country that is viewed as a place of opportunity for anyone, regardless of origin. However, the country has its own dark past that has only recently been addressed. This article will explore the ways in which Margaret Laurence uses her novel, The Diviners, to show how the teaching of the Euro-Canadian settler perspective of history leads to ingrained biases and a lack of remorse for Indigenous people, leaving an opening for further suffering and attempted genocide.
