1 Sea People - Christina Thompson
Auteur : Christina Thompson
Genre : Biographies et mémoires
A blend of Jared Diamond’s Guns, Germs, and Steel and Simon Winchester’s Pacific, a thrilling intellectual detective story that looks deep into the past to uncover who first settled the islands of the remote Pacific, where they came from, how they got there, and how we know.

For more than a millennium, Polynesians have occupied the remotest islands in the Pacific Ocean, a vast triangle stretching from Hawaii to New Zealand to Easter Island. Until the arrival of European explorers they were the only people to have ever lived there. Both the most closely related and the most widely dispersed people in the world before the era of mass migration, Polynesians can trace their roots to a group of epic voyagers who ventured out into the unknown in one of the greatest adventures in human history.

How did the earliest Polynesians find and colonize these far-flung island

2 Urban Aboriginals and the Relation to Their Cultural Heritage - Ilona Sontag
Auteur : Ilona Sontag
Genre : Arts et disciplines linguistiques
More than 230 years ago, Captain James Cook, a British explorer, discovered the Australian continent and claimed it for Great Britain. From then on, the Indigenous Australian population experienced a drastic cultural and social change. Today around 68% of the Aboriginal population [] live in urban environements` (Knudsen 2004, S. 73). Despite the progress in assimilation, smoldering sources of social friction between Aboriginal people and the white community, like unemployment, poverty, alcoholism and bad health care, remain. These subjects often occur in literature of indigenous authors, especially poetry, the most popular genre of Aboriginal creative expression in English (Shoemaker 1989, S. 179). Another important theme, which is often worked up in indigenous poetry, is the urban Aboriginal`s relation to their cultural heritage, which will be the topic of this termpaper. This theme is

4 Aboriginals and the Mining Industry - David Cousins & John Nieuwenhuysen
Auteur : David Cousins & John Nieuwenhuysen
Genre : Australie et Océanie
In 1973, Peter Rogers concluded that 'Australia has not done itself justice in the handling of modern industry versus Aborigines conflict... the lack of preparation... is a disgrace to government, private organisations and unions alike'.

What has happened since then? Aboriginals and the mining industry reviews three main questions - to what extent have Aboriginals shared in the fruits of the mining boom? Have new land rights helped Aboriginals protect their interests as affected by mining? And what has been the contribution of mining to the economic development of remote Aboriginal communities? These are vital questions for all concerned with the impact of mining expansion on Aboriginal communities.

This book reviews the participation of Aborigines in the mining company employment. It examines the contribution of the recent land rights legislation to protec

Comeback

Once again, John Ralston Saul presents the story of Canada’s past so that we may better understand its present – and imagine a better future.
Historic moments are always uncomfortable, Saul writes in this impassioned argument, calling on all of us to embrace and support the comeback of Aboriginal peoples. This, he says, is the great issue of our time – the most important missing piece in the building of Canada. The events that began late in 2012 with the Idle No More movement were not just a rough patch in Aboriginal relations with the rest of Canada. What is happening today between Aboriginals and non-Aboriginals is not about guilt or sympathy or failure or romanticization of the past. It is about citizens’ rights. It is about rebuilding relationships that were central to the creation of Canada. These relationships are just as important to its continued existence. The cent
