About the Author

Bruce Granville Miller is a professor of anthropology at the University of British Columbia.


The collection . . . makes a strong contribution to the emerging literature on indigenous histories that seeks to uncover local understandings of culture, identity, and social change. In addition, Be of Good Mind examines the changes occurring in the field of Coast Salish studies, by taking stock of its historical roots, by grappling with the opportunities of the present, and by commenting on the challenges that lie ahead.
