Aboriginal History: A Reader free pdf Aboriginal History: A Reader is a contributed textbook/reader hybrid. The book contains more than 60 articles, images, and primary documents that present key topics in the history of Canada's Aboriginal peoples from a variety of different perspectives. This book examines a broad spectrum of Aboriginal issues in Canada, from the perspectives of First Nations, Metis, and Inuit peoples. The readings and new and previously published articles provide information on such topics as spirituality, systems of learning, socialization, perspectives on first contact with European travellers, and issues of self-identity in colonial and post-colonial Canada. The articles throughout this volume provide a fresh perspective on such topics as the Federal Indian Policy, residential schools, religion, culture, labour, economy, and Aboriginal women's rights.

Pedagogical features such as 'Chapter Objectives', 'Questions for Consideration', and 'Further Resources' help contextualize the content and bring Aboriginal experiences to life, helping students gain a new appreciation for the complex nature of Aboriginal history in Canada.
