"For fifty years anthropologist June Helm studied the culture and ethnohistory of the Dene, "The People," the Athapaskan-speaking Indians of the Mackenzie River drainage of Canada's western subarctic. This collection represents the culmination of her fieldwork, for the benefit of those studying North American Indians, hunter-gatherers, and subarctic ethnohistory and as a historical resource for the people of all ethnicities who live in Denendeh, Land of the Dene." "Helm begins with a broad-ranging, stimulating overview of the social organization of hunter-gatherer peoples of the world, past and present, that provides a background for all she has learned about the Dene. The chapters in part I focus on community and daily life among the Mackenzie Dene in the middle of the twentieth century. After two historical overview chapters, Helm moves from the early years of the twentieth century to the earliest contacts between Dene and white culture, ending with a look at the momentous changes in Dene-government relations in the 1970s. Part 3 considers traditional Dene knowledge, meaning, and enjoyments, including a chapter on the Dogrib hand game. Throughout, Helm's encyclopedic knowledge combines with her personal interactions to create a collection that is unique in its breadth and intensity."--Jacket

Western Woods Cree NG08( )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of eight documents is about the Western Woods Cree who lived aboriginally in the boreal forests from Hudson and James Bays westward to the Peace River in Canada. In the early twenty-first century they are found primarily in the region between Lake Superior and Hudson Bay. Mason provides an overview of the Western Woods Cree ethnography; Smith (1981) presents a brief summary of some of the major features of their ethnography dating from the seventeenth to the late twentieth centuries, with an emphasis on the western Swampy and Rocky Cree populations. Two of the studies in this collection by Smith (1976, 1987) discuss and analyze the ethnological 'myth' dealing with the movement of the Western Woods Cree to the southwest areas at the time of the initial Euro-American contact. According to this belief French and English guns gave the Cree technological superiority over their neighbors to the west and southwest and permitted them to move easily into the conquered lands. Evidence for pottery making at the time of early Euro-American contacts is discussed by Meyer. Fisher describes the socio-cultural evolution of the hunting band discussed in terms of social, ecological, and historical variables within the society. Hallowell presents a study of cross-cousin marriage in relationship to the kinship system
