More Description

Following the success of "First Invaders" (Ronsdale, 2004), Alan Twigg turns his attention to First Nations writers, unearthing more than 300 books by more than 170 mostly unheralded British Columbia aboriginal authors. Taking the reader from residential schools to art galleries, this lively and unprecedented panorama of British Columbia includes trailblazer Pauline Johnson, political organizer George Manuel and Haida carver Bill Reid. Equally important, "Aboriginality" sheds new light on fascinating, lesser-known figures such as Chief William Sepass, and Howard Adams, to name only two. Nearly half the author profiles are women, including Marilyn Dumont, Lizette Hall and Heather Harris. Each author is presented in historical and chronological context, along with background material on aboriginal history, as well as rare photos, illustrations and a comprehensive bibliography.

"Alan Twigg's "Aboriginality" is unprecedented and indispensable.&#quot;

—Howard White, publisher, "Encyclopedia of British Columbia "
