Abstract:

"Full Circle is appropriate for college and university courses in Anthropology, Sociology, Native Studies and Canadian Studies. Using a 'native-centric' voice, the text takes a modern and multidisciplinary approach, providing historical, geographical and cultural background before reviewing the current state of affairs for first nations peoples in Canada. It provides a concise overview of all native groups, including Inuit and Metis, and explores recent developments in the political, environmental, and legal areas. This revised edition includes up-to-date ethnographic data and deals with some pressing health-related issues of growing concern."--Pub. desc.
