Emeritus Prof. Thomas King

University of Guelph emeritus professor Thomas King saw few Native faces on the campuses where he taught. King, School of English and Theatre Studies, rarely does interviews but he spoke with CBC Windsor about challenges faced by indigenous students, including poor representation on campuses and little awareness of Native issues among young Canadians. King said Canadians and Americans need to learn more about those challenges, especially land claims. An accomplished author, King won the 2014 RBC Taylor Prize for non-fiction for his book The Inconvenient Indian.
