Indigenous Peoples Within Canada: A Concise History is the Oxford University Press 2019 publication authored by the late Métis historian Olive P Dickason (1920 – 2011) and history professor William Newbigging. Updated, this fourth edition of A Concise History of Canada’s First Nations is a comprehensive overview of the long and vibrant history of Indigenous Peoples within what is now Canada. This engaging, chronological text offers a multifaceted account from time immemorial and pre-contact to present-day movements towards sovereignty. Drawing on a range of Indigenous viewpoints this edition includes First Nations, Inuit, and Métis art as well as historical understanding by including traditional knowledge about origins. Entirely new is the inclusion and use of Indigenous terminology as well as preferred names. A chart is provided for readers that will assist senior secondary level students and college/university students and their teachers and professors. Chapters 18 and 19 are extensively revised bringing in examples of current areas of reconciliation and revitalization. The late Olive Patricia Dickason was Professor Emeritus at the University of Alberta and adjunct professor of history at the University of Ottawa. She was the author of several books, named a Member of the Order of Canada in 1996, and received the Aboriginal Life Achievement Award, Canadian Native Arts Foundation, in 1997.  William Newbigging is an Adjunct Professor at Laurentian University, where he has taught Indigenous history since 1993. He holds a doctorate in history from the University of Toronto. He is also a long-time research associate of Batchewana First Nation, Mississauga First Nation, Walpole Island First Nation, as well as many other First Nations and associations across Canada and the United States. This a highly recommended text ideal for schools, libraries, and the general reader.
