Scope and content

This series consists of A-Z subject files that are primarily related to Rodney Bobiwash's professional activities as a First Nations and Anti-Racist activist. The series documents the far-right political movement that took place in Toronto, and throughout Canada, in the early and mid-1990s. The series includes profiles of far-right racist agitators, white supremacist newsletters and propaganda such as the Heritage Front's Up Front, documentation of the KKK in Canada, and documents related to the anti-racist resistance mounted by Bobiwash and other activists. The series is arranged alphabetically by subject, with records dating from 1980 through to 1997. Photos of Aryan Fest 1992 can be found in Series 10, Boxes /001P and /004P. Series 1 provides a comprehensive overview of the far-right movement in Toronto, and in Canada, during the 1990s, and an understanding of the role Rodney Bobiwash and other First Nations/anti-racist activists played in combating right-wing hate groups.
