Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungThe Dene nation consists of twelve thousand people speaking five distinct languages spread over 1.8 million square kilometres in the Canadian subarctic. In the 1970s and 1980s, the campaign against the Mackenzie Valley pipeline, support for the leadership of Georges Erasmus in the Assembly of First Nations, and land claim negotiations put the Dene on the leading edge of Canada's native rights movement.
PortraitKerry Abel is assistant professor of history, Carleton University.
PressestimmenReviews of the first edition: "Abel's study is sweeping, detailed, intelligible, and persuasive. This is simply an excellent piece of work on a subject about which till now very little has been available to students ... Drum Songs is a fine example of scholarly interpretation and presentation."
