Bitter Feast  Amerindians and Europeans in Northeastern North America, 1600-64, Delage, Denys
42 Delage, Denys Bitter Feast Amerindians and Europeans in Northeastern North America, 1600-64
Vancouver, BC University of British Columbia Press 1995 0774804513 / 9780774804516 Second Printing Paperback Very Good 
Card covers show light shelf wear.; A tight solid book. Text unmarked; Trade PB; 1.2 x 9 x 5.6 Inches; 399 pages; "In Bitter Feast, sociologist an dhistorian Denys Delage takes a fresh look at the struggle underlying the meeting of two civilizations on the North American continent. Both civilizations had strongly developed economic, religious, and cultural traditions. Each had something to give and something to learns, and yet one was to emerge as a powerful new force, while the other was to be shaken to its foundations.‘The race to accumulate capital drove European shipes to teh shores of northeastern North America,’ writes Delage, ‘brining into contact two civilizations--one on the brink of Industrial Revolution, the other still in the Stone Age.’ When the first Europeans arrived, the continent’s population was as great as that of Europe. Until this time, Amerindians had rarely lacked food, and had traded widely on foot and by water for the commodities they desired. Caught in the web of an unequal trading relationship where furs were exchanged for fish hooks and faith, Amerindian civilization in northeastern North America faced a challenge that set the pattern for future generations.Finally available in English, this award-winning book presents a provocative world-system analysis of European coilonization in North America as well as a sobering account of the impact that this colonization had on native peoples. It will be of interest tooanyone looking for new ways of understanding the continent’s early history--the legacy of which still has implications today."

Little Pine and Lucky Man: A History 1866-1885, Dodson, Peter

Saskatchewan Self Published 2003 Paperback Very Good+ 
Light edge wear to card covers, small soiling on lower front cover. ; Includes end notes and extensive bibliography. A bright, solid book ; Trade PB; B&W Illustrations; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 53 pages; "The Cypress Hills, located in southwest Saskatchewan, have been home to many different First Nations throughout history including the Assiniboine, the Blackfoot and the Plains Cree. In the 1860's, with the decline of the buffalo, the Cypress Hills, which still contained buffalo herds, became more important than ever to the Plains Cree... When the negotiations for Treaty 6 began at Fort Carlton in August of 1876, several Cree chiefs were worried about finding a way to maintain the buffalo herds and in the process, maintain the Plains Cree way of life and provide them with enough security for the future. After Treaty 6, Little Pine, Big Bear and Lucky Man moved south to the Cypress Hills to try and continue hunting buffalo, but by 1879 almost no buffalo were making their way into Canada.... With their people starving, there was much pressure on Little Pine and Lucky man to take Treaty and as a result, get some much needed rations for their people. Facing starvation and an uncertain future, both Little Pine and Lucky Man adhered to Treaty 6 on July 2 1879. Little Pine and Lucky Man spent their lives trying to protect their people and their way of life. This is their story. "

The Road to Nunavut ; The Progress of the Eastern Arctic Inuit since the Second World War, Duffy, R. Quinn
48 Duffy, R. Quinn The Road to Nunavut ; The Progress of the Eastern Arctic Inuit since the Second World War
Kingston ON McGill-Queen's University Press 1988 0773506195 / 9780773506190 First Edition Hardcover Very Good in Good+ dust jacket Illustrated by Map Endpapers 
Dust jacket chipped & scuffed with some creasing ; A bright, solid book, DJ in Mylar ; 9.32 X 6.40 X 1.09 inches; 308 pages; "In The Road to Nunavut, R. Quinn Duffy analyses federal government policy on the social and economic growth of the Inuit. Duffy describes the economic, social, and political changes in the Eastern Arctic and provides the historical background to the current debate on Inuit land claims and political subdivision of the Northwest Territory. Gradually, and somewhat reluctantly, the Canadian government assumed the role of guardian of the Inuit and became involved in their housing, education, employment, and health services. The evolution of government-supported services created problems that are still unmet; the changes in life-style that resulted were exacerbated by unemployment and the Inuit's inferior social and political status. Starting in the 1960's, these complex problems led to increased delinquency, violence, and abuse of alcohol. Duffy shows how the Inuit gradually assumed responsibility for improving their situation, eventually developing the political maturity that found expression in the Inuit Tapirisat of Canada, its affiliated organizations, and the pressure for regional self-determination."

Her extraordinary story, sometimes humourous and sometimes heartbreaking, illustrates an Inuit woman’s movement between worlds and ways of understanding. It also provides a clear-eyed record of the changes that swept through Inuit communities in the 1940s and 1950s. Mini Aodla Freeman was born in 1936 on Cape Hope Island in James Bay. At the age of sixteen, she began nurse's training at Ste. Therese School in Fort George, Quebec, and in 1957 she moved to Ottawa to work as a translator for the then Department of Northern Affairs and Natural Resources. Her memoir, Life Among the Qallunaat, was published in 1978 and has been translated into French, German, and Greenlandic. Life Among the Qallunaat is the third book in the First Voices, First Texts series, which publishes lost or under appreciated texts by Indigenous writers."

A New Look at Canadian Indian Policy Respect the Collective - Promote the Individual, Gibson, Gordon
58 Gibson, Gordon A New Look at Canadian Indian Policy Respect the Collective - Promote the Individual
Vancouver BC The Fraser Institute 2009 0889752435 / 9780889752436 First Edition Softcover Very Good+ 
Light shelfwear to card cover edges. ; A bright, solid book.; 8.90 X 6 X 0.60 inches; 268 pages; "The estate of the Indian people of Canada is the most important moral question in federal politics. The responsibility flows directly to each of us as voters. This book talks about what we, Canadians generally, can do to understand this and what governments can do to discharge their responsibilities. The standard model for thinking about Indian policy is fundamentally wrong, giving too much weight to the collective and too little to the individual. It presumes and enforces a relationship between the Indian individual and relevant collectives (both Indian and state) that is biased against individual free-dom and choice. This relationship has produced the adverse social outcomes in health, education, life span, incomes, housing, substance abuse, violence, imprisonment and so on universally criti-cized by all. The relationship between the individual and the collective has been the major force in human life from time immemorial but the character of that relationship has evolved over time. In one dark corner of this long drama, a special case of the relationship between individual and collective has been playing out in Canada in the lives of native Indians. In this particular corner, the collective assumes an impor-tance unthinkable in the mainstream. Indian policy, imposed by the mainstream on some Canadi-ans Indians has built for them a world that is both a fortress and a prison. The effects on the indi-viduals within that system have been profound. I believe that there is a growing concern about this. If so, there is an opening to a better future. But in spite of good will, pernicious and counter-productive incentives remain to burden an entire people, not just as trailing legacies of the past but as current active goals of governments and other entities in the system. The fatal defects in outcomes are not redeemed by the fact that the intentions are in general of the best. Some commentators will say with reason that this paper challenges some of the most basic assumptions of established Indian policy. This challenge would not be necessary if established Indian policy was working well, for Indians or anyone else." cover blurb

gift notation, possibly written by publisher. ; A bright, solid book, glossy pictorial card covers.; Trade PB; B&W Photographs; 9.80 X 7.90 X 0.40 inches; 95 pages; "For over 100 years, the Oblates of Mary Immaculate operated St. Mary’s Mission, a residential school near Mission, BC. Now the stories of its former students are told for the first time. In Amongst God’s Own, acclaimed writer Terry Glavin has woven the accounts of 35 native elders into a bold, uncompromising narrative of life at St. Mary’s.Sitting with the Oblates’ arrival and their establishment of the Mission on the Fraser River, Glavin tracks the chronology of St. Mary’s through the 20th century, revealing the Order’s religious, political, and social underpinnings. Native voices recount the realities of day–to–day life at the school. Moving beyond the prevalent discourse of oppression and victimhood, the result is a ground–breaking portrait of this place and time that illuminates 200 years of Native–white interaction in BC.Enhancing the stories are 60 photos culled from personal and archival collections. Amongst God’s Own is a unique record of a people at a crossroads, caught in a clash between government and religious authority whose consequences reverberate to this day."
