Description

On the Land: Confronting the Challenges to Aboriginal Self-Determination in Northern Quebec and Labrador is a collection of seven essays about the various ways First Nations and Inuit in Quebec and Labrador are asserting their rights to the land and challenging the right of Quebec to sovereignty. Aboriginal voices include Matthew Coon Come, Zebedee Nungak, Daniel Ashini, and Mary Ellen Turpel. Views from the outside include Harvey Feit, Alan Penn, and Boyce Richardson. The book covers the Inuit of Quebec, the Innu of Labrador, and the James Bay Cree. Nungak's essay discusses identity asking if he is a Quebecer, a Canadian or an Inuk. Lawyer Mary Ellen Turpel discusses the conflicting visions of self-government in Quebec from the French and Aboriginal perspectives.
