Essential reading for anyone who wants to deepen their understanding of First Nations in what is now British Columbia.

The First Nations of British Columbia, now in its third edition, is a concise and accessible overview of BC’s First Nations peoples, cultures, and issues. Robert J. Muckle familiarizes readers with the history, diversity, and complexity of First Nations to provide a context for contemporary concerns and initiatives. This latest edition of the classic work has been fully revised, with new chapters added and previous ones rewritten, arguments reframed in light of current developments, and resources brought right up to date. The First Nations of British Columbia is an indispensable resource for teachers and students and an excellent introduction for anyone interested in BC First Nations.

Robert J. Muckle has been involved in numerous anthropological research projects, served as a consultant to several First Nations, and taught at postsecondary institutions throughout British Columbia. He currently teaches anthropology at Capilano University in North Vancouver.

While following in the footsteps of Wilson Duff’s seminal Indian History of British Columbia, Robert Muckle’s overview of BC’s First Nations from an anthropological perspective has won praise for being “unhindered by old-fashioned and insensitive anthropology.” This updated version shines as a perfect example of the constructive work done by many authors over several decades to build a viable bridge of understanding with First Nations. It represents BC publishing at its essential best. - Alan Twigg, BC BookWorld

This book provides an interesting perspective on BC First Nations culture. It gives us a view into First Nations communities, past and present, and helps to dispel some of the myths that still exist. Having worked as a cultural tourism manager, I find it an appealing book that will encourage readers who are curious to learn more about First Nations culture in British Columbia. - Lillian Hunt, Cultural & Island Tour Guide, 'Namgis First Nation, Alert Bay
