I Have Lived Here Since The World Began
An Illustrated History Of Canada's Native PeopleBook - 2005
The Native people of Canada have been here since the Ice Age and were already accomplished traders, artisans, farmers, and marine hunters when Europeans first reached their shores. Contact initially presented an unprecedented period of growth and opportunity. But soon, the two vastly different worlds clashed. From first contact to current Native land claims, Arthur Ray charts the history of Canada's Native peoples. The result is a fascinating chronicle that spans 12,000 years and culminates in the headlines of today.
