A Cultural History of Canada

Mar 25, 2024

In which Patrick talks with wildlife biologist Wayne McCrory about the beautiful - and surprisingly controversial - wild horses of the Chilcotin region.
In this compelling book, McCrory draws upon two decades of research to make a case for considering these wonderful creatures, called qiyus in traditional Tŝilhqot’in culture, a resilient part of the area’s balanced prey-predator ecosystem. McCrory also chronicles the Chilcotin wild horses’ genetic history and significance to the Tŝilhqot’in, juxtaposing their efforts to protect qiyus against movements to cull them.
