Be of Good Mind

"Be of Good Mind" brings together the views of Aboriginal leaders, anthropologists, historians, archaeologists, and linguists about how Coast Salish lives and identities have been reshaped by two colonizing nations and by networks of kinfolk, spiritual practices, and understandings of landscape. This book moves beyond existing scholarship to provide a new view of the Coast Salish world. This is the first book-length effort to directly incorporate Aboriginal perspectives and a broad interdisciplinary approach to research about the Coast Salish. Contributors point to the continual reshaping of Coast Salish identities through litigation and language revitalization, as well as community efforts to reclaim their connections with the environment. Equally important is the development of detailed local and regional history and archaeology. Readers interested in First Nations history and contemporary issues in Canada and Aboriginal-academic relations will find this essential reading, as will scholars interested in ethnographic methods and interdisciplinary inquiry.
