The thousand-year path : the Canada Hall at the Canadian Museum of Civilization by Robert McGhee( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The path of European history in Canada begins ten centuries ago with the first ventures of Norsemen to the northeastern coasts. It winds westward across the continent and through time, following the rise of the cod fishery, the fur trade, the early farms of Acadia and those of the Loyalists who retreated to Canada after the American Revolution. In decades, the Prairies were transformed from buffalo country to wheat farms, and British Columbia from a fur trading colony to a complex society of many peoples. The scenes of the past glimpsed along this historical trail allow travellers to build their own sense of the country s history, and of the immense labour undertaken by our ancestors."--Jacket
Legends of our times : native cowboy life by Morgan Baillargeon( Book )

2 editions published between 1998 and 2008 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Throughout the world, the cowboy is an instantly recognized symbol of the North American West. Legends of Our Times breaks the stereotype of 'cowboys and Indians' to show an almost unknown side of the West. It tells the story of some of the first cowboys - Native peoples of the northern Plains and Plateau." "Through stories, poetry, art, and reminiscences in this lavishly illustrated work, Native people invite the reader on a fascinating journey into the world of ranching and rodeo. The book also presents the special relationship between Native people and animals such as the horse, buffalo, deer, and dog, which have always played an important role in Native spiritual and economic life."--Jacket
Fascinating challenges : studying material culture with Dorothy Burnham by Judy Thompson( Book )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1990, Dorothy Burnham, a renowned authority on textiles and former curator at the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto, began work with three curators at the Canadian Ethnology Service of the Canadian Museum of Civilization. This book marks the 10th anniversary of this rewarding collaboration. It celebrates Dorothy Burnham's many contributions to ongoing research on the Museum's ethnographic collections from the Northern Athabaskan, Arctic, Plateau and Eastern Woodlands regions of North America. Eight papers highlight the important role that comprehensive study of museum collections - in particular, the understanding of garment cuts and techniques of weaving, sewing and decorative work - can play in material culture studies. Three papers by individuals working in contemporary Aboriginal communities illustrate the value of this detailed information to those seeking to revive traditional skills. Fascinating Challenges is an important resource for anyone interested in material culture studies and Aboriginal heritage."--Jacket

The Great Peace : chronicle of a diplomatic saga by Alain Beaulieu( Book )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Montreal, summer 1701. There was excitement in the air, as ambassadors from nearly forty Indian nations assembled in the town, the heart of New France. Summoned by Governor Louis-Hector de Calliere, France's allies, including the Algonquins, Ottawas and Hurons, were gathering alongside representatives of the Iroquois. The goal of this daring initiative: to convince them all to sign the Great Peace treaty." "This book recounts the story of this exceptional event in words and images. Of course, it introduces readers to the French and Native players involved in the negotiations and examines the geopolitical and trade issues addressed by the treaty. But most of all, it paints a picture of a legendary time in North America, when the most disparate cultures had to find a way to co-exist." "This voyage to New France is divided into eleven chapters, in which the authors' absorbing commentary is brought to life through abundant illustrations of all kinds. Historian Alain Beaulieu and anthropologist Roland Viau were inspired by the writings of an eyewitness to these events, Bacqueville de La Potherie, Comptroller of the Marine and Fortifications in Canada, to guide us through the twists and turns of an extraordinary summer. The adventure begins on July 20, 1701 ..."--Jacket
