"This new edition offers a refreshing and much-needed take on Indigenous histories in the area now known as Canada. It centers Indigenous voices to disrupt colonial historical narratives and situate contact, colonialism, and Canadian state expansion as complex and often violent processes. It critically engages with established settler narratives about Canada's history without casting Indigenous peoples as victims." --Sarah Nickel, University of Saskatchewan "This is a comprehensive history of First Peoples in what is now Canada, a rich cornucopia of fact and story that brings to life the diversity of Indigenous societies from time immemorial, their relations with each other as well as with colonizing powers, and their long struggle to reassert their self-determination and survive and thrive as peoples in the modern world." --Victoria Freeman, York University
