Description

A Homeland for the Cree: Regional Development in James Bay, 1971-1981 is an invaluable study of how the first James Bay project was negotiated between the Cree and the Quebec government. Richard Salisbury follows the negotiations which began in 1971 and analyses the changes to Cree society over a ten-year period in light of the regional development in James Bay. The Great Whale Hydro-Electric Project (James Bay II) caused controversy not only in Canada but in the United States, especially New York and Vermont. The need to understand the Cree's struggle to oppose the devastation of their homeland is documented here by the late Richard F. Salisbury, Dean of Arts, McGill University and former Director of the Anthropology of Development program.
