Description

"Subarctic Peoples" describes the story of this culture area and its hardy inhabitants - peoples such as the Chippewa, Beaver, and Algonkin - who continue to flourish even in the harshest and most inhospitable of environments, including remote parts of Canada and the interior of Alaska. This informative new title, featuring maps, photographs, and sidebars, serves as a useful reference on the histories and cultures of these groups of people.Coverage includes: the construction of lean-tos; ice fishing; early trade with Europeans; the Canadian Indian Acts of 1876 and 1951; the current impact of oil and mineral exploration and development; and much more.
