S. Minsos PhD Susan Williams Minsos is the former coordinator of the Canadian Studies Program at the University of Alberta. Dr. Minsos wrote Culture Clubs: The Art of Living Together and its prequel Weird Tit-for-Tat: The Game of Our Lives to challenge with a tit-for-tat trichotomy the tit-for-tat dichotomy. She completes the culture-club series with her newly released book, Culture Clubs: The Real Fate of Societies. Minsos models her fiction on true incidents, as well as the time, place, and the adventures of her great-great grandparents, Mohawk Tehawennihárhos (Squire Davis) and Scottish immigrant Jennet Ferguson. Minsos illuminates the many barriers they faced in 1845-46. Much later (than the setting of the trilogy), Minsos' great-grandmother Isabella Davis, registered Oneida, lost treaty status after she married. As for methodology, Minsos' theory of socialization contributes significantly to our understanding of the way domination sparks the manners of individuals, and how teams (groups of individuals/culture clubs) naturally coalesce around a common purpose – and the purpose always depends on variable contexts, aka, affordances. It was to illustrate differing culture clubs and manners that Minsos wrote the Mohawk Trilogy, the Sky Walker Tehawennihárhos novels. As the mid-century dust settles in Canada West (Ontario), the protagonists try to fit in either with established culture clubs or create new ones, whichever may best suit their needs as they adapt to changing affordances. The colonial government, William Hamilton Merritt, and David Thompson's mishandling of the Grand River Navigation Company was the scandal that rocked the solid foundations of the wealthy Six Nations Confederacy, 1832-1882.
