Abstract
In Aboriginal™, Jennifer Adese explores the origins, meaning, and usage of the term "Aboriginal" and its displacement by the word "Indigenous." In the Constitution Act, 1982, the term's express purpose was to speak to the "aboriginal rights" acknowledged in Section 35(1). Yet in the wake of the Constitution's passage, Aboriginal, in its capitalized form, became far more closely aligned with Section 35(2)'s interpretation of which specific groups held those rights, and was increasingly used to describe and categorize people. More than simple legal and political vernacular, the term Aboriginal (capitalized or not) has had real-world consequences for the people it defined. Aboriginal™ argues the term was a tool used to advance Canada's cultural and economic assimilatory agenda throughout the 1980s until the mid-2010s. Moreover, Adese illuminates how the word engenders a kind of "Aboriginalized multicultural" brand easily reduced to and exported as a nation brand, economic brand, and place brand--at odds with the diversity and complexity of Indigenous peoples and communities. In her multi-disciplinary research, Adese examines the discursive spaces and concrete sites where Aboriginality features prominently: the Constitution Act, 1982; the 2010 Vancouver Olympics; the "Aboriginal tourism industry"; and the Vancouver International Airport. Reflecting on the term's abrupt exit from public discourse and the recent turn toward Indigenous, Indigeneity, and Indigenization, Aboriginal™ offers insight into Indigenous-Canada relations, reconciliation efforts, and current discussions of Indigenous identity, authenticity, and agency. -- Provided by publisher.

Abstract
Native American tribes living on the Great Plains have long attracted the attention of Euro-American scholars, inspiring over the years a vast quantity of research. The contributors to this volume discuss and evaluate all the major works of scholarship devoted to the culture of Plains Indians, from the arrival of these peoples on the North American grasslands thousands of years ago, through their subsequent Village and High Plains lifeways, to their present-day adaption to reservation and urban life. Toghether, the twenty-two authors undertake a comprehensive survey of the state of anthropology on the Plains: what it has been, what it is now, and what it may offer theory and method in the future. -- From interior dustjacket

Abstract
The worldview of the Siksikaitsitapi is a journey into the heart and soul of Blackfoot culture. In sharing her personal story of coming home to reclaim her identity within that culture, Betty Bastien offers us a gateway into traditional Blackfoot ways of understanding and experiencing the world. As a scholar and researcher, Bastien is also able to place Blackfoot tradition within the context of knowledge building among indigenous peoples generally, and within an historical context of precarious survival amid colonial displacement and cultural genocide. -- From back cover

Abstract
Brave Like the Buffalo is a children’s book with a message that will inspire all readers to face the storms in their life with the help of their support systems and with a brave mindset. Baby buffalo is surprised and scared when a storm on the prairies passes through. Mama buffalo puts on a brave face and demonstrates how to use courage and bravery to get through the literal and metaphorical storms we may face in life. Written by Melissa Allan and illustrated by Cree illustrator Jadyn Fischer-McNab, this story uses a powerful animal, the buffalo, as a symbolic message and connection to Indigenous ways of knowing and being that helps to create a wonderful narrative rich with Indigenous ties and a heartwarming message around facing adversity. Brave Like the Buffalo is intended for audiences aged 4-8, to be used educationally as a way to intertwine Indigenous ways of knowing and being through story. -- From publisher

Abstract
The Canadian Mountain Assessment provides a first-of-its-kind look at what we know, do not know, and need to know about mountain systems in Canada. The assessment is based on insights from First Nations, Métis, and Inuit knowledges of mountains, as well as findings from an extensive assessment of pertinent academic literature. Its inclusive knowledge co-creation approach brings these multiple forms of evidence together in ways that enhance our collective understanding of mountains in Canada, while also respecting and maintaining the integrity of different knowledge systems. The Canadian Mountain Assessment is a text-based document, but also includes a variety of visual materials as well as access to video recordings of oral knowledges shared by Indigenous individuals from mountain areas in Canada. The assessment is the result of over three years of work, during which time the initiative played an important role in connecting and cultivating relationships between mountain knowledge holders from across Canada. -- Provided by publisher.
