The Indian History of British Columbia, The Impact of the White man, by Wilson Duff.
Wilson Duff presents a clear and comprehensive summary of the effects of immigrant settlement on the populations, cultures, economies, and religions of First Nations in British Columbia.
First published in 1964, The Indian History of British Columbia remains an important anthropological and historical record up to the early 1960s.
A few topics in this book include The Aboriginal Population, The Fur-Trade Period: Stimulus and Growth, and Period Since Confederation: Years of Change.
“In the 50 years since [this book] was first published there have been many changes in the way interactions between First Nations and colonial cultures are conceptualized and discussed. The Impact of the White Man is now a historical record in itself: a benchmark for understanding the profound changes that have taken place in our understanding of the topic over half a century. At the same time, it remains a useful source of information for researchers, students, and the general public.” –Martha Black, from her Foreward
Wilson Duff was a Canadian archaeologist, cultural anthropologist, and museum curator. He is remembered for his research on First Nations cultures of the Northwest Coast, notably the Tsimshian, Gitxsan, and Haida.
