Scholarly depictions of the history of Aboriginal people in Canada have changed dramatically since the 1970s when Arthur J. ("Skip") Ray entered the field. New Histories for Old examines this transformation while extending the scholarship on Canada’s Aboriginal history in new directions. The collection combines essays by prominent senior historians, geographers, and anthropologists with contributions by new voices in these fields.

New Histories for Old is a major contribution to understanding Native-newcomer relations, Native struggles for land and resources under colonialism, “Indian” policy and treaties, mobility and migration, disease and well-being, and questions about “doing” Native history. It will appeal to scholars and students in history, Native studies, geography, anthropology, and related fields.
