Canada's First Nations: A History of Founding Peoples from Earliest Times is the revised edition of Olive Dickason's highly acclaimed history of First Nations told from the Native perspective. This Metis historian uses an interdisciplinary approach to tell the story of Aboriginal People in what became Canada. She describes the richness, variety and complexity of 57 founding First Nations. The coming of Europeans and the impact on the traditional societies are described and analyzed.
The 'Nations Within': Aboriginal-State Relations in Canada, the United States, and New Zealand is a comparative study about Aboriginal Peoples in three countries and their relations with European colonizers. Each 'Nation within' shares a similar position in their respective countries and each group of Aboriginal People seeks the common goal of restoring their unique status. To achieve their goals, the authors suggest that a massive restructuring of relations between Aboriginal People and the state is necessary.
