|Title||The First Nations of British Columbia.|
|Author||Muckle, Robert J.|
"In British Columbia there is general agreement that 'First Nations' refers to groups of people who can trace their ancestry to the populations which occupied the land prior to the arrival of Europeans and Americans in the late 1700s.
The First Nations of British Columbia presents a concise and accessible overview of First Nations' peoples, cultures, and issues in the province. Its primary purpose is to provide an understanding of today's pertinent concerns and initiatives by familiarizing readers with the history, diversity, and complexity of First Nations. It does so from an anthropological perspective from which crucial archaeological ethnographic, historic, and legal-political issues are explored.
