Book description:
What are the social forces that are destructive to a native society and how are their leaders trying to overcome them? Many have already heard of the campaign of the Cree people to protect their forest way of life from the impact of hydro-electric development in northern Quebec; few have heard in any detail the outcome of this campaign and what it means for the future of indigenous societies. Readers will find a systemic method for documenting the social impact of large-scale development on village communities. This study serves to balance the more common theme that focuses exclusively on the forces of acculturation and social destruction of native communities. Sociologists and anthropologists. Part of the Cultural Survival Series.
