Appropriate for courses in North American Indians, American ethnic studies, or introduction to anthropology, this text chronicles the endurance of the Mi'kmaq Indians as a tribal nation, their ordeals in the face of colonialism, and their current struggle for self-determination and cultural revitalisation. Features: * This text spans 500 years of the complex dynamics of Mik'kmaq culture. The Mi'kmaqs, who still inhabit northern Maine and Canada, were among the first Indians to encounter European colonists. * Direct quotations of Mi'kmaqs and outsiders enable the reader to appreciate different, and sometimes conflicting points of view. * The author has worked on a successful Mi'kmaq native rights case for ten years, helping one Mi'kmaq band gain federal recognition and a land claim settlement.
