Who Killed William Robinson?
Hosted by the University of Victoria History Department, this site explores "Who Killed William Robinson?" That is just the first of the questions you may ask of this web site. "How did he live?" is another. In the documents that follow there is a rich social history of the Blacks, Aboriginal People, Kanakas (Hawaiians) and Whites of many national backgrounds, from Azorian Portugese to the British colonial elite, who settled Salt Spring Island. Their stories tell us much about the settlement of British Columbia, Canada and to a degree, the United States. They tell about settlement, the importance of land, the dispossession of aboriginal people, about justice, racism, family life, religion -- the full gamut of life in the colony.
