Aboriginal Voices and the Politics of Representation in Canadian Introductory Sociology Textbooks by John Steckley examines the content of Canadian sociology textbooks and the overwhelming lack of coverage of Aboriginal Peoples and issues in these Canadian introductory courses. He examines three major areas: Oka, the Potlatch, and Inuit Elder suicide. By examining 77 textbooks the author has devised conclusions about the failure of Canadian textbooks to properly include Aboriginal voices into the content.
Fascinating study of seventeenth century Huron/Wendat language from early Jesuit writing sources. This form of linguistic archaeology covers the Huron or Wendat as well as the Wyandot (Petun) Nations and their culture, kinship, clans, relationship to the environment, material culture, ceremonies, warfare, medicine and disease, and relationship to the French. Of particular interest is the coverage of the construction of longhouses and wooden armour, terms for trees found in the names of villages, and wampum references.
