Racism, Colonialism, and Indigeneity

Third Edition

Edited by Martin J. Cannon and Lina Sunseri

Indigenous Peoples in the Twenty-First Century

Fourth Edition

James S. Frideres

 A concise yet comprehensive introduction to the continuing repercussions of colonialism in Canada, this text addresses crucial issues such as the legacy of residential schools, intergenerational trauma, and Indigenous languages and culture.

Indigenous Peoples within Canada

Fifth Edition

The late Olive Patricia Dickason, William Newbigging, and Cary Miller 

This text spans the full history of Indigenous Peoples, beginning with origin stories and the pre-contact era and then tracing the development of Indigenous-European relations from contact to the present day. Indigenous perspectives are centred throughout, with Indigenous interpretations of historical events and Indigenous contributions to the history of what is now Canada foregrounded. 

Visions of the Heart

Fifth Edition

Edited by Gina Starblanket, David Long, and the late Olive Patricia Dickason

This thought-provoking, contributed collection by leading scholars is an indispensable resource for understanding contemporary issues involving Indigenous Peoples in Canada, such as modern treaty relationships, cultural resurgence, and critical examinations of gender and sexuality. 

Aboriginal History

Second Edition

Kristin Burnett and Geoff Read 

Combining contemporary articles with historical documents, this engaging reader examines the rich history of Aboriginal peoples within Canada through a thematic lens. Primary documents accompany each reading to provide students with a deeper understanding and appreciation of the long and complex history of First Nations, Métis, and Inuit peoples in Canada. 

First Nations People in Canada

James S. Frideres 

Frideres' introduction to the current status of First Nations peoples considers often troubled relations with the federal government as well as their surprising resilience. This fascinating assessment draws on all the most recent and most reliable data of First Nations peoples across Canada, both on reserve and in urban centres. 

Peace, Power, Righteousness

Second Edition

Taiaiake Alfred 

Taiaiake Alfred calls for the indigenous peoples of North America to move beyond their 500-year history of pain, loss, and colonization, and move forward to the reality of self-determination. His account of the history and future of the indigenous peoples of North America is at once a bold and forceful critique of Indigenous leaders and politics, and a sensitive reflection on the traumas of colonization that shape our existence.
