A propos de cet article

Language: English . Brand New Book. Living on the banks of the turbulent Fraser River, the Nlaka pamux people of Spuzzum have a long history of contact with non-aboriginal peoples. They watched as Hudson s Bay Company employees hacked a path through the mountains for the fur brigades, and over time they found themselves in the path of the Cariboo road, the CPR, and virtually every commercial and province-building initiative undertaken in the region over the past two centuries. Juxtaposing historical narratives and cultural interpretation from the community of Spuzzum with archival information, this book explores the history of Spuzzum in the light of concepts central to the Nlaka pamux definition of family, political authority, land, and cosmos.

A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

Living along the banks of the Fraser River in southwestern British Columbia, the Nlaka’pamux people of Spuzzum have ahd a long history of contact with non-Aboriginal peoples. In 1808 they hosted Simon Fraser as an overnight guest. Later they watched as fur traders searched for transport routes through the mountains of the Fraser Canyon, and saw miners, settlers, and merchants flood into their country during and after the gold rush. Since then, the Nlaka’pamux have found themselves in the path of the Cariboo Road, the Canadian Pacific Railway, and virtually every other commercial and province-building initiative undertaken in the region.

Spuzzum is about the response of an Aboriginal community to events beginning with Simon Fraser’s visit in 1808 and ending with the Second World War. Based on a long collaboration between ethnologist Andrea Laforet and the late Annie York, a Nlaka’pamux resident of Spuzzum, this book gives voice and shape to the people who created, and re-created, the life of this community during this time. Encounters between Spuzzum people and Europeans are explored through narratives, personal memories, and family albums of Spuzzum people, as well as through missionaries’ journals, explorers’ accounts, and other archival records. In the final chapter Andrea Laforet examines both Nlaka’pamux and European ways of knowing the past in the context of current literature from anthropology, history, and ethnohistory.

In the wake of the decisions in the Delgamuukw case, the construction and interpretation of the past in both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal societies has become an issue of vital importance. In examining the history of the community in this light, Spuzzum makes a significant original contribution to the study of First Nations history and ethnohistory.

About the Author:

Andrea Laforet is director of the Canadian Ethnology Service at the Canadian Museum of Civilization. Annie York (1904-91) was born in Spuzzum and lived there most of her adult life.
