Shared Histories, a new book by Tyler McCreary, seeks to tell the stories of the Witsuwit'en Indigenous people who went to live in Smithers in northwestern B.C. after they were pushed out of  their traditional territories. Indigenous people often settled on the fringes of urban communities. In Smithers, this community was known as "Indian Town." In Shared Histories, McCreary explores themes of racism and reconciliation.
