Description

Aboriginal Peoples in Canada provides a current, comprehensive introduction to Aboriginal Peoples in Canada. Now in its 9th edition this introductory Native Studies text offers new content such as urban life, gender issues, the Métis, the Inuit, and global issues relating to Aboriginal Peoples. The book covers the recent changes to the Aboriginal Affairs ministry, the residential school apology, and the Truth and Reconciliation Commission. The material is presented from the perspective of Native Peoples (as opposed to from the perspective of federal and provincial governments). Overall, this text offers a good balance between social and cultural issues, as well as historical, legal, and theoretical material. Chapters include colonialism, identity, demographic profile, social profile, political organizations, land rights title, self-government, and economic involvement. The book contains chapter questions, an index, maps, charts, graphs, and a bibliography.
