Description

Home Is the Hunter: The James Bay Cree and their Land presents the historical, environmental, and cultural context from which this recent story grows. Hans Carlson shows how the Cree view their lands as their home, their garden, and their memory of themselves as a people. By investigating the Cree's relationship with the land and their three hundred years of contact with outsiders, the author illuminates the process of cultural negotiation at the foundation of ongoing political and environmental debates. This book is more than a story of dam building and industrial logging in northern Quebec. It offers a way of thinking about Indigenous peoples' struggles for rights and environmental justice in Canada and elsewhere.
