The first French-Huron dictionary by Father Jean de Brébeuf and his Jesuit Brethren by John Steckley( )

7 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 927 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This work provides, for the first time, the Jesuit lexical and grammatical description of the Huron language. It includes a translation and analysis of what may be the oldest surviving French-Huron dictionary composed by French-Jesuit missionaries, dated to sometime during the 1640s or 1650s. The work of the missionaries with Father Jean de Brébeuf?s early studies in the 1620s to Father Pierre Potier?s efforts during the mid-eighteenth century established a body of linguistic work unique from any other Aboriginal language in the Americas

Beyond their years : five Native women's stories by John Steckley( Book )

7 editions published between 1999 and 2009 in English and held by 227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book tells the life stories of five Native Canadian women, reconstructed using a variety of historical sources. Each biography is drawn from a different native culture, spread geographically from Saskatchewan to Newfoundland; collectively the stories cover the period from 1656 to 1922. This path breaking book shatters stereotypes by showing the power that native women had in their communities. The images of a squaw and Indian princess can now be replaced by a more realistic view of women diverse in personality and life history. Readers of this book will find the variety and richness of these women's lives to be truly absorbing" -- from back cover
De religione : telling the seventeenth-century Jesuit story in Huron to the Iroquois( Book )

3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 218 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Aboriginal voices and the politics of representation in Canadian introductory sociology textbooks by John Steckley( Book )

9 editions published between 2003 and 2008 in English and held by 190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The philosophical underpinnings of this textbook make it a most interesting read for scholars of Aboriginal studies, the social sciences, humanities, cultural studies, and humanistic curriculum development." "John Steckley's familiarity with and respect for the epistemology of the Huron, Mohawk, and Ojibwa peoples enlightens and enables his research. In this book, he provides a critical framework for assessing Aboriginal content in introductory sociology textbooks. He defines what is missing from the seventy-seven texts included in his study of the manifestation of cultural hegemony in Canadian sociology textbooks. This critique is suitable for students and professors of sociology, as Dr. Steckley addresses the impact of the ellipses in the texts they have traditionally used."--Jacket

Indian agents : rulers of the reserves by John Steckley( Book )

8 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Canadians are beginning to learn about the negative effects of residential schools on Aboriginal people in Canada. More hidden in the written record, but bearing a similar powerfully destructive role, are Indian Agents, who were with very few exceptions White men who {u2018}ruled the reserves{u2019} in Canada from the 1870s to the 1960s. This book is the first to present a discussion of Indian Agents in general. It provides an introductory look at the control Indian Agents exercised over Aboriginal communities throughout the period in question. The primary intent is to spark discussion in Indigenous studies courses. This book is built upon a discussion of the lives and impact of five Indian Agents: Hayter Reed, William Morris Graham, John McIver, William Halliday, and Fred Hall. However, the practices and views of 39 other Indian Agents are interwoven throughout the text. Although there was a readily detectable sameness in the way that Indian Agent power was imposed on Aboriginal communities based on the institutional racism of the Indian Agent System, one of the points to be made is that not all Indian Agents were the same. Some were more oppressive than others. Also frequently pointed out is the fact that Aboriginal peoples were not merely helpless victims to Indian Agent control, but resisted that control, sometimes successfully. The book concludes with a chapter comparing the Indian Agent System in Canada, with similar systems in the United States, Australia, and New Zealand."--Publisher's website
