Description

This book offers a many-faceted examination of the cultures of the Tlingit, the Haida, the Tsimshian, the Bella Coola, the Kwakiutl, the Nootka, and the Salish--Indian peoples of the coast running from the Canadian border area of Juan de Fuca Strait to Yakutat Bay in southeastern Alaska. Professor McFeat has brought together key writings by seventeen authorities including Franz Boas, Helen Codere, Viola E. Garfield, and Wayne Suttles. General readers as well as scholars have an opportunity to examine a wide range of literature and thereby to increase their understanding of one of the most interesting groups among the Indian peoples of North America.
