Summary
"Aboriginal Peoples of Canada: A Short Introduction provides the first comprehensive overview of Canada's First Nations peoples. Drawn from the highly successful Encyclopedia of Canada's Peoples, it offers extensive coverage of the Algonquians / Eastern Woodlands, Algonquians / Plains, Algonquians / Subarctic, Inuit, Iroquoians, Ktunaxa, Metis, Na-Dene, Salish, Siouans, Tsimshian, and Wakashans, as well as the many nations within these larger groupings. With a new preface by Paul Robert Magocsi and an introduction by well-known historian J.R. Miller, the collection has chapters on each main group written by scholars such as Janet Chute, Olive Dickason, Louis-Jacques Dorais, and Eldon Yellowhorn. Each chapter covers the economics, culture, language, education, politics, kinship, religion, social organization, identification, and history of each nation, among other topics, and ends with suggestions for further readings. Readable, and suitable for the student, casual reader, or expert, the book is an excellent introduction to Canada's aboriginal peoples."--Jacket
