Description

Aboriginal Autonomy and Development in Northern Quebec and Labrador contains 22 essays that illuminate the process of Indigenous autonomy and development in northern Quebec and Labrador. Contributors include academic specialists, Aboriginal leaders, and professionals employed within Aboriginal governments who address key conditions for autonomy and development: the definition and redefinition of national territories as cultural orders clash and mix; control of resource bases and maintenance of environments upon which northern regional economies can depend; renewal and reworking of cultural identity; and the healing of community as people cope with the damage inflicted by continued colonial intrusion into Aboriginal lands and lives. The essays discuss Ouje-bougoumou, Whapmagoostui, Chisasibi, Mistissini, Sheshatshiu, as well as the James Bay Cree and the region of Nunavik.
