In Colonizing Bodies: Aboriginal Health and Healing in British Columbia 1900-1950, a Nisga'a elder implores the historian Mary Ellen Kelm: "When we talk about the poor health of our people, remember it all began with the white man" (xv). This special issue of JLCDS invites scholars to consider two interrelated phenomena: on the one hand, colonialism has produced indigenous disability and illness—through the depletion of traditional sources of food and medicine, enforced containment in boarding schools and substandard reservation housing, trauma, poverty and so on. On the other hand, colonial discourse also pathologizes Native people—construing them as genetically prone to certain illnesses, for instance.
