From the publisher's website:
"Combining contemporary articles with historical documents, this engaging reader examines the rich history of Canada's Aboriginal peoples through a thematic lens. The 31 articles - of which more than half are original to this volume - explore a diverse range of topics, including identity, treaties, spirituality, federal policy, residential schools, labour, and women's rights. Primary documents accompany each reading to provide students with a deeper understanding and appreciation of the long and complex history of First Nations, Metis, and Inuit peoples in Canada."
