Vainqueuer des Anglais? That's not how Canada Posts' Millennium Stamp collection tells it. According to them "A noble warrior and chief of the Odawa tribe during the 18th century, Pontiac persuaded the British crown to recognize the legal rights of Aboriginal tribes to claim title to the lands they occupied."So shouldn't it be 'lui qui a persuadé la couronne Britannique'?
That's awesome. As they say, it's the victor who writes the history. In our goofy case, we still have two victors who can't stop fighting over the history.
