AbstractThis thesis explores Settler perceptions of Indian/Settler relations in a Labrador community and interprets these perceptions as statements about Settler identities and social characters. Analysing the causes of changes in perception, the thesis demonstrates the operation of various influences, historical, economic, and political, in the creation of these identities and perceptions. Finally, it shows how ethnicity becomes fluid with the fragmentation of social experience caused by these influences, and how this fluidity makes it possible to manipulate ethnic identity in pursuance of various goals.
