Summary This unique collection of essays explores the conflicted, contested and shared histories that produced spaces of belonging and exile in colonies of settlement around the Pacific rim including Australia, Aotearoa New Zealand, and British Columbia. Each contribution explores the thematic question of how the unique societies that developed from British settler-colonialism made and continue to make the spaces they occupy. In essays and poems, authors explore the spatial legacies of contact between Indigenous peoples and newcomers in a fascinating journey that takes readers from snowy deserts to emerging urban landscapes, and from census data to contemporary Indigenous music scenes. Collectively the essays offer a rich social history of the gridded, patchworked and layered visages that make up today's settler-colonial space
