Indigenous Peoples in Canada has been adapted from Diversity and Indigenous Peoples in Canada, 3rd Edition, to offer a focused and concise overview of Indigenous Peoples from pre-contact to the 21st century. This text explores the historical relationship between Indigenous Peoples and new populations of settlers, and lays a foundation for understanding past and present interactions and relations.
Intended for any overview course in Native Studies, this text examines key topics like treaty processes and land claims, contemporary socio-economic issues facing Indigenous Peoples, and the legacy of the residential school system, with an emphasis on the Truth and Reconciliation Commission report and its Calls to Action. It also covers the positive strides that Indigenous communities are making toward self-government and the stabilization of their communities.
This is the ideal resource for studying Canada’s Indigenous Peoples in the post-TRC era.
