A history of the Native peoples of Québec, 1760-1867: R5-291/1983E-PDF

"Any history of the Native peoples of Quebec during the crucial period between 1760 and 1867 must emphasize at the outset that the aboriginal population of the province presents a varied picture. There was not a single Native people, but several peoples, each with its own history and way of life. They inhabited vastly different regions of the province, from the Inuit on the frozen shores of Hudson Strait to the Micmac on the temperate coast of the Bay of Chaleur. They followed different subsistence patterns, from the caribou hunters of the interior to the agriculturalists of the St. Lawrence lowlands. They had different relations with Eurocanadians, from the fur trading posts of Hudson Bay to the mission reserves in the southern part of province. This brief history cannot hope to do justice to the experience of each group, and it would be misleading not to recognize their individuality."--Chapter 1.
