About the Author

Antonia Mills is associate professor in the First Nations Studies program at the University of Northern British Columbia, Prince George.


UBC Press is to be commended for putting together a fine book. The numerous prologues and forwards help the reader put Ms. Mills' testimony into legal and cultural context. As for Ms. Mills' testimony itself, I am quite confident that it will ultimately emerge as a far more noble and respectable document than Chief Justice McEachern's judgment. -- Edward Morawski * The Graduate *
In ongoing discussions of the role of expert witnessing, this book will remain a significant contribution. -- Julie Cruikshank * Western Historical Quarterly *
Eagle Down is Our Law ... marks the start of an era in which First Nations will increasingly produce their own representations of their social institutions and histories. Mill's book provides an opportunity for non-Natives to begin to develop an understanding of the nature and operation of Witsuwit'en society. -- Kevin Washbrook * BC Studies *
