Based in part on its University of Victoria originated website Klatsassin and the Chilcotin War, the Great Unsolved Mysteries project won the 2008 Governor Generals Award for popularizing Canadian history and a MERLOT award from the California State University project on Multimedia Education Resources for Learning and Online Teaching.

It is disappointing, then, to find that Klatsassin and the Chilcotin War makes no attempt at balance, objectivity or accuracy. Instead, it flagrantly disrespects the Tsilhqotin perspective and buries its few Tsilhqotin selections under a disproportionate barrage of unimportant detail. Just as astounding, as this Review documents at length, the website disregards any standard of care for accuracy from even the written record. Does the acclaim given this flawed production reflect a willingness of academics to abandon all discipline on the Internet, or does it reflect an anti-indigenous colonial legacy still alive and well at Canadian universities?
