Aboriginal Populations: Social, Demographic, and Epidemiological Perspectives.


Aboriginal Populations: Social, Demographic, and Epidemiological Perspectives

Edited by Frank Trovato and Anatole Romaniuk

The U. of Alberta Press


550 pages



Designed as a tool for academic researchers, students, and policy analysts, this anthology looks at the recent demographics of indigenous populations in Canada and the circumpolar North. Though it is a cross-disciplinary Native Studies anthology, the editors identify it as devoted to macroanalysis (economics and demography) rather than microanalysis (anthropology, sociology, and cultural studies). The primary focus here is on academic and government research on Canadian First Nations peoples, with a final section of comparative studies on Native American, Australian and New Zealand Aboriginal, and Russian and Scandinavian arctic native peoples. The overall tone is that of outside observers noting that while significant problems remain, Canadian First Nations peoples are emerging from an era of low population and disenfranchisement to a new phase as a social and economic force in the region.
