Kristin Burnett and Geoff Read

  • Current. Sixteen new readings by scholars from across the country, covering a variety of engaging topics - such as identity, treaties, residential school, and labour - provide students with the most up-to-date scholarship in the discipline.
  • Inclusive. Chapters exploring First Nations, Inuit, and Métis experiences ensure a well-rounded and balanced representation of Aboriginal people in Canada.
  • Engaging. Primary documents, original chapter introductions, questions for consideration, and additional resource suggestions provide important historical and contextual analysis and encourage deeper understanding.
  • Comprehensive. Readings and primary documents span a broad historical range - from the 1700s to modern day - to present students with a look at how events and issues have changed over time.
