Book News
Muckle (anthropology, Capilano College, Canada) presents a synthetic overview of the First Nations (Native American) people of the Canadian province of British Columbia. He primarily approaches the topic through an anthropological lens, discussing First Nations prehistory, traditional lifeways, and cultural change over the past 200 years. However, he also covers government relations, significant court cases, political negotiations in the 1990s, and current issues. Distributed in the US by the U. of Washington Press.
