This book is an insight on the First Nations people of Canada , their ancestral origin, their literary background, and their culture and livelihood. It projects the plays of George Ryga, a Ukrainian immigrant, who initiated the native Canadians to write their own thoughts and sufferings and present it to the world as Aboriginal grudges against the system created by the white Europeans. Ryga’s eight published plays have been discussed with a detailed study on two of his plays based on Native themes. The book has been arranged into six chapters. The first chapter discusses the First Nations historical, sociological and cultural background. The second chapter is an emphasis on the literary background of the First Nations. The third, fourth and fifth chapter is a study on George Ryga’s plays. The third chapter discusses his greatest play, The Ecstasy of Rita Joe. The fourth chapter is a detailed study of the play Indian. The fifth chapter analyses Ryga’s six other plays based on varied themes. The sixth and last chapter is a conclusion based on the research study.
