Book Description

July 26 2004

Since Native Peoples and Cultures of Canada was first published in 1988, its two editions have sold some 30,000 copies, and it is widely used as the basic text in colleges and universities across the country.

Now retitled, this comprehensive book still provides an overview of all the Aboriginal groups in Canada. Incorporating the latest research in anthropology, archaeology, ethnography and history, this new edition describes traditional ways of life, traces cultural changes that resulted from contacts with the Europeans, and examines the controversial issues of land claims and self-government that now affect Aboriginal societies.

Most importantly, this generously illustrated edition incorporates a Nativist perspective in the analysis of Aboriginal cultures.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Marvelous book! Dec 2 2009
As far as the study of First Nations is concerned, this book not only introduces the reader to this subject but enables him or her to gain a thorough understanding of it. In my research, I have come across very few books of this quality, comprehensiveness, and detail. It's a strongly recommended book for anyone looking for an in-depth overview of all the First Nations of Canada.

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Well organized. Easily understood. Unlike many books that leave people in the past, or that become too legally technical, this one describes history in a balanced fashion and ties in history with current issues. It describes how various groups were changed by the fur trade, and the effects of European settlement on migration. There is a good section on the Metis people. The material corresponds to my current knowledge base, although there were a few surprises (to me) regarding subarctic people. The book begins by dethroning the Bering Straight hypothesis with solid evidence. The book would be very good for classroom use and for those who have a limited understanding of Aboriginal cultures and issues. I would have liked more coverage/detail on Bill C31.

2.0 out of 5 stars Bought For a Class Dec 10 2013

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I had to buy this book for a class I was taking in University. I'm not going to say it was one of my favourites. It provided very interesting facts about Aboriginal people in North America, but was rather dry.

3.0 out of 5 stars Boring, but informative. July 6 2014
By Carolyn - Published on Amazon.com
Such a dry book, but had a lot of information used for a college course. Definitely put me to sleep on the airplane though.
