People Who Own Themselves
Aboriginal Ethnogenesis in A Canadian Family, 1660-1900Book - 2004
"The People Who Own Themselves reconstructs 250 years of the Desjarlais family history across a substantial area of North America, from seventeenth-century New France and the eighteenth-century French settlements along the Mississippi and Missouri rivers, to nineteenth-century Rupert's Land in Western Canada." "Featuring a unique how-to appendix for Metis genealogical reconstruction, this book will be of equal interest to individuals wanting to investigate their own Native family roots and to scholars researching the formation of indigenous communities and identities."--Jacket.
