Title First (national) space: (Ab)original (re)mapping of British Columbia.
Author Brealey, Kenneth George
Summary "Before contact First Nations in what is now British Columbia were not mapmakers. Territory was demarcated experientially, by genealogy, oral narrative, ceremony, and the social arts. Since contact, however, and especially since the beginning of the comprehensive claims process in the early 1970s, First Nations have become mapmakers--not because they especially wanted to but because they had to. They have recognized that cartography--whether in court, at the treaty table, or for pedagogical purposes--is a way of validating Aboriginal title and rights." taken from the provided abstract, p. ii.
